Hands-on learning in the laboratory is at the heart of our broad-based biology major, which is designed to prepare you to excel in graduate and professional school, teaching biology and immediately entering a science-related industry. You will graduate from our program with a major research experience, which is rare on the undergraduate level. This, along with such unique courses as bioethics, is especially impressive when you apply for graduate and professional school or enter the job market.
You will gain practical experience independently using a wide range of molecular and DNA instrumentation in the laboratory setting. Also, engaging in internships, learning how to interpret and analyze complex problems, and presenting research at scholarly conferences will all serve to enhance your knowledge, skills and marketability.

Hands On In The Lab
Your lab coat and goggles will definitely come in handy in our biology labs. In Spring 2022, our students studied the effects that environment play on mice. The students constructed two environments: one with lots of engaging activities and one that was sparser, then they recorded their findings. Hands-on research is an almost daily experience for our biology students, and they have the chance to present that research to their peers, faculty and staff members of the College at the annual Student Research Forum. This helps you build on your critical thinking, oral and written communication, collaboration and professionalism.
