Undergraduate Programs in Zoology at Miami University
Introduction from Susan M.G. Hoffman, Ph.D., Professor and Chief Departmental Advisor

Thank you for your interest in our department.  A major in Zoology provides a foundation for many exciting and rewarding careers in human and animal health, medical and biological research, teaching, animal care, conservation, environmental biology, etc. This web site serves as a good introduction to the program and what we have to offer -- please look over the information and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Studying Zoology allows for a great deal of hands on experience not only with high tech equipment, but also with animals


We strive to provide our majors with a quality education, to facilitate their completion of the degree requirements, and to help them identify and realize their career goals. We welcome both those students who enter our program with well-defined goals and those who initially have only a vague and general interest in animals or in certain aspects of biological science.

All declared majors are assigned a departmental advisor (as early as the spring semester of their first year) to help them chart their course through the various departmental, College of Arts and Science, and Miami University (Miami Plan) requirements and to help them prepare for a career. We encourage our majors to meet with their assigned advisors as early as possible and at least once a year thereafter. Additional help is available from the several preprofessional advisors and organizations, from the Office of Career Services and from the Career Exploration and Testing Center.

Studying Zoology can lead to employment in medicine, dentistry, physical therapy, and a multitude of other careers

We hope that you will take full advantage of the opportunities and services available and that your association with the Department of Zoology will be both long lasting and mutually beneficial.
