About

At Biology at California Lutheran University you’ll examine all aspects of the biological world, preparing you for a successful career in health, research, or teaching.

Overview

At Biology at California Lutheran University we emphasize “doing” science. Throughout your classes, you’ll work side-by-side with your professors in the lab and field to discover key insights about your subjects — gaining invaluable hands-on experience along the way.

Experiment — a lot!

The heart of the Biology program at California Lutheran University is experimentation, and you’ll do lots of it. You’ll design your own experiments, collect scientific data, perform statistical analysis, and share your conclusions through research papers and presentations.

Expand your research

You’ll be able to further the research from your classes — or even start ambitious new experiments — with opportunities available through our:

Full-time, 40-hours-per-week summer research fellowships

Departmental honors program, with additional research-intensive courses
