Biology is about exploring the world, so we embed this philosophy within the program through lab courses and learning outside of the classroom, enabling students to experience what it means to be a biologist first-hand.
As students become more confident and ambitious in their undertakings, their research efforts extend beyond our campus. In addition to the work our students have done locally — from cultivating our pollinator garden to studying the Quinnipiac River — students have completed relevant and meaningful research and conservation efforts during service-learning trips across the country and the globe.
This experience with dedicated research lends itself nicely to a transition into postgraduate study. Our students graduate with impressive resumes and artifacts of their work, each of which contributes to stronger applications to medical school, dental school, veterinary school and other master's and doctorate programs in the sciences.
