Overview

While the B.A. in Biology offered by Seton Hall University is for students interested in incorporating their biology expertise into other fields, the B.S. is meant for students who would like to pursue careers in science or who are considering graduate programs in science or medicine. The program provides a strong foundation in the modern sciences and prepares students through experiential learning, laboratory research and off-campus work experiences.

The programme

Students in this program study biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics. The program starts with General Biology I and II and Genetics courses, then covers cell biology, four semesters of chemistry, two of physics and two of math. Electives allow you to explore specialized areas of biology and to pursue independent library or laboratory research. Students with especially strong academic credentials may apply for the Biology Honors Program, which leads to a senior thesis.
