Major: Biology

Whether you want to pursue medical or graduate school, or start working with your Bachelor’s degree, one of our Biology majors will be right for you.

Our B.S. in Biology prepares you to become a research scientist or to enter graduate school in any field of life science. It also provides the foundation for entrance to medical, dental, veterinary, or physician assistant programs.

Our B.A. in Biology is an excellent choice for those seeking a career in other health science professions, like physical or occupational therapy. For more information on our programs, contact our Department Chair, Prof. Benedetta Sampoli Benitez.

We offer a real opportunity to distinguish yourself as an undergraduate, through small classes, research with faculty, and the best biomedical internships in New York City. Students who complete a senior thesis graduate with Honors in the major. As a result of these experiences, our alumni have excellent outcomes. 

Admission to our Biology program is competitive. For more information on admission, contact Prof. Ann Aguanno.
