Biology

Bachelor of Science in Biology

Classes are small so that students have the opportunity for discussion, exploration and exchange of ideas. Faculty work closely with students, from in-class projects to advanced scientific research, to help them gain confidence in their skills and knowledge. The program is structured in that the first two years students receive a firm grounding in the biological and physical sciences and the last two years, students are completely immersed in the sciences with the opportunity to concentrate in their chosen area.

With a curriculum that also uses computer technology and computer‑interfaced laboratory analytical tools, the biology program prepares students for the real demands of science in today’s world.

State-of-the-art science equipment (such as a genetic analysis system that is used in the forensic science and biotechnology fields), instrumentation and technology for the new laboratories, provide a setting where you gain real-life work experience, putting theories to practical use.
