Department of Biology

Welcome to the Department of Biology. We are pleased to welcome 250 new students into the program as we start the 2014-2015 academic year. This website has a lot of information and is designed primarily for our students. If you browse through the pages you will find everything you need such as contact information for your professors or your class syllabus. We routinely post information on upcoming events, summer programs and post-graduate opportunities for you to continue your education. You can also look through our social media sites to find examples of some of the really fun class and research projects available to our students. Finally, one of our initiatives this year is to get more of our students traveling to scientific meetings to present their research – so get into a lab and join us on our travels!  

There are lots of other announcements that will be forthcoming and I encourage you to sign up and follow the department's activities on my twitter account @RobertGannon2.

If I can be of any help to you as a prospective or current student, please e-mail me at rlgannon@valdosta.edu.

Please follow the link below if you would like to receive a brochure about the Department of Biology.
