Overview

The curriculum is designed for students pursuing advanced degrees in biology or health-related fields, as well as those planning to directly enter the workforce or secondary education. Curricular objectives focus on promoting a broad, well-rounded foundation in biology while enabling pursuit of an area of specialization.

Entering freshmen study the primary subdisciplines of biology and then select either cell and molecular, organismal or population biology as an area of concentration. All students take coursework in each of the concentrations, but they engage their area of concentration to a greater extent. A hallmark of the curriculum is an emphasis on hands-on experiences in labs or the field, including a three-semester independent research project that all students complete as a graduation requirement. 

What Can I Do With a Degree in Biology offered by the Saint Vincent College? Majoring in biology is an ideal start to your career in the sciences. The many opportunities available at Saint Vincent College during your college years will ensure success after graduation.
