The biology program at MSU Texas prepares students to become self-sufficient, independent thinkers who work heavily in scientific research. Often, graduates of the biology program put their skills to use in a variety of fields. Careers range from teacher to lab technician to scientific technical writer and from positions in the FBI to positions in wildlife parks.

The biology program at MSU Texas is the optimal environment for learning. The faculty pride themselves on the 2:5 student-to-professor ratio that they are able to provide. This ratio results in the faculty being approachable and accessed more easily. Furthermore, it allows professors to provide more one-on-one attention to students who are working on thesis research. The smaller enrollment size of the biology program means that the Graduate and Teaching Assistantships are not as competitive as they may be at schools with larger enrollment numbers.
