Laboratory and field experiences provide hands on experience working with organisms in ex situ and in situ settings.  Courses such such as Animal Behavior, Neuroscience, and Physiology help students grasp organisms within integrative themes of study. Additional field experiences can be taken in Tropical Biology and the Ecology of Florida, as well as at the Au Sable Institute.
