Your Experience

A degree in biology unlocks the door to many opportunities in the medical and scientific world. From the molecular level to the big picture of entire ecosystems, we’ll give you the knowledge to pursue a career in public health, dentistry, veterinary medicine, wildlife preservation, or the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. 

While building a foundation in the life sciences and physical sciences, you’ll also have the flexibility to focus on your specific passion, whether it’s genetics, physiology, ecology or another related area. If medicine is your interest, then our pre-med concentration will ensure that you’re well-prepared to attend medical school after graduation. Well-equipped lab facilities and experiential learning opportunities, including the Quinnipiac Interdisciplinary Program for Research and Scholarship (QUIP-RS), give you a head start on your career by enabling you to apply theory in practical settings.

Our biology majors have the freedom to create experiential learning projects that reflect their passions. Recent projects include research, either at Quinnipiac or at sites as distant as New Zealand; participation in service trips to Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic; working at zoos and national parks; and shadowing medical and dental professionals.
