The mission of the Biology Education programme from Marist College  is to provide an outstanding and supportive educational environment in which students and faculty flourish as they seek to better understand the biological sciences and their practical applications.


The Objectives of the Biology Program are:

  • To offer a diversity of courses with both breadth and depth through four areas of concentration.
  • To prepare students to meet the prerequisite requirements to enter the various health professions ranging from medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, podiatry, pharmacy, optometry, both physical and occupational therapy, physician assistant, and other allied health professions.
  • To prepare students for entry into graduate programs in the biological sciences through course preparation and research opportunities.
  • To prepare students to gain certification in secondary education in the biological sciences.

There are three curricular choices for students interested in biology. The Biology major offers a general curriculum for those who may be unsure of their future career path.
