In the Biology programme from Carroll University , you’ll explore and come to understand the most basic, pressing issues of life, using the tools of the scientist. 

Through research and hands-on work which begin in your first year, you’ll study the living world—from small, single-celled organisms, to humans, to elephants (you may end up conducting your own research study at the Milwaukee County Zoo).

You’ll gain the knowledge you’ll need to work in a research lab or for graduate school, which will allow you to pursue a career in health sciences. And you’ll have the opportunity to conduct real science. Using the scientific method, you’ll plan and conduct experiments and learn to interpret the results. 

You’ll gain problem solving, time management and critical thinking skills and be prepared for a wide range of career and post-graduate educational options. We also provide strong support for students focused on a particular career, helping you shape your own education. And the major pairs easily with numerous other disciplines at Carroll, meaning you can obtain a double major and still graduate in four years.
