Do a search of the most popular college majors, and you will almost certainly find Microbiology at Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in the top 10.


Microbiology majors at Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences often struggle after graduation because they lack the specialized knowledge that pharmaceutical and biomedical employers covet, and their broad-based education makes it difficult to distinguish themselves among other graduate school applicants. That is not the case with the Microbiology program at ACPHS - one of just two such programs in New York State. Our program is focused on the micro-organisms (e.g., bacteria, fungi, viruses) that cause disease in humans.

Learning outcomes

Through its research emphasis and specialized tracks of study, you will observe micro-organisms, study their behaviors, track their spread, and learn what can be done to minimize the risks they pose to humans. Those interested in gaining additional research experience should consider our dual degree program leading to a B.S. in Microbiology and an M.S. in Molecular Biosciences.

Whichever path you choose, you will graduate with a differentiated degree that prepares you equally well to immediately seek employment or continue your education in a graduate or professional school.
