our curriculum

The curriculum in each of our tracks provide students with a sound academic foundation in all Formal and Natural Sciences, including Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and, of course, Biology.  Students in our program learn about fundamental biological concepts and principles, scientific thinking and experiment design. Students in our program will also become familiar with how Biology is learned- from molecules, to cells, to whole organisms- as well as their ecology and that of their ecosystems, thanks to well-equipped laboratory facilities.

our affiliations & student resources

The Department provides many resources to help our students prepare for and obtain employment and careers in the life sciences after completing their degree. For example, we have affiliation agreements with the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM), Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM), Palmer College of Chiropractic, and Alvernia University, which secure an interview and/or acceptance should a student meet academic and other defined criteria for the schools.

Please explore our pages to learn more about completing a major or minor in Biology.
