Biology

Gain the skills and experience needed for a career in modern science as you earn a Bachelor of Science in Biology.

Why Biology at Bay Path University?

The Biology program integrates lectures with laboratory sessions. At Bay Path University, biology classes are small for a reason — to provide the constant opportunity for discussion, exploration, and exchange of ideas.

As a student in the Biology program, you will:

  • Work closely with faculty on everything from in-class projects to advanced scientific research
  • Integrate lectures and laboratory techniques with hands-on learning
  • Learn how to think objectively and question assumptions
  • Experience a curriculum that incorporates modern technology and tools
  • Develop the skills needed to work collaboratively in a lab setting
  • Gain real-world experience and implement practical theories through internships and world-class facilities

Biology students spend their first two years learning the fundamentals of biological and physical sciences. The next two years are spent completely immersed in the field of biology, with the opportunity to concentrate in a chosen area.

The main science laboratories and classrooms includes fluid learning spaces that teach students how to  work collaboratively in the lab, think objectively, and ask questions—all important skills for a scientist. With access to state-of-the-art equipment typically found only in industry and graduate laboratories, our students gain real-life work experience and put theories to practical use. Our instrumentation includes:

Bay Path offers a variety of student support, including peer, professional, and online tutoring. The faculty encourages me to work individually and in groups, and pushes me to attain my goals. Bay Path has helped me in infinite ways in preparing me for success, starting my first year when I got accepted into a summer program at Columbia University." - Yismel, Biology & Medical Science Double Major

Bay Path Science Student Places 8th in Video Competition!

The Journal of Visualized Experiments (JoVE) held a contest called "Film Your Research." This contest had the goal to get scientists connected with the concept of “visual science” by making a 2-minute video featuring a researcher performing a scientific experiment/technique in the laboratory or in the field. Nicole Gousy, a Bay Path science student, placed 8th out of 200 submissions from graduate students, post-docs, and research scientists. Click here to check out her video! Nicole also won a poster award for her work at the Active Site 2017 conference at Northeastern University. She was awarded a $500 travel award to attend the American Society for Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Annual Meeting in San Diego!
