The student-centered Biology program from Salve Regina University explores the diversity of modern biology through dynamic classroom instruction, practical laboratory experimentation, exciting research opportunities and field study in Aquidneck Island’s living laboratory.


The innovative laboratory courses of the Biology program at Salve Regina University are the focal point of our curriculum. Our newly renovated facilities provide endless opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience using state-of-the-art instrumentation. Students also consider the moral and ethical consequences of advances in the sciences, developing the skills necessary for critical thinking, thoughtful analysis and sound judgment.

Our Program

Outside the classroom, we encourage students to pursue their individual interests in the sciences through research projects and independent study. Working closely with faculty mentors, students are trained in cutting-edge methods, allowing them to conduct graduate-level research that is often published or presented at conferences.

While many of our students enter graduate programs, including medical, dental and veterinary schools, others find success in the fields of education, research and health care. Students may also choose to double major in biology and secondary education, which prepares them to apply for Rhode Island teacher certification for grades 7-12.
