At Nazareth College, students in Biology are mentored by biologists who assist them in the understanding of biology's basic principles, discoveries, and theories.


They learn how to develop the habits of a biologist—accurate observation, measurement, and analysis. Students are also encouraged to think independently, and learning becomes less structured as they progress through the program.

All Biology majors at Nazareth College participate in independent research as a capstone project, and many students do field work and internships. For example, a pre-medical student recently completed an internship in Berlin, Germany working at a center on epilepsy research.


  • An award-winning faculty, including recent recipients of National Science Foundation grants to study plant growth and to purchase state-of-the-art physiology equipment.
  • State-of-the-art technology at our new Peckham Hall, including PCR and electrophoretic equipment, digital imaging, and GPS systems. Nazareth's facilities rank among the top 20 science labs in the nation, according to The Princeton Review's 2017 college guide, The Best 381 Colleges.
  • Special community projects and partnerships such as Science Days at the Rochester Museum and Science Center, the Science Olympiad at local schools, internships to study abroad, and the Nazareth College greenhouse.
