In Immaculata’s biology programs, you’ll explore how living organisms function, reproduce and adapt to changes and challenges. Whether you want to be a medical professional, lab technician, researcher, educator, veterinarian, or public health representative, Immaculata offers you a strong foundation in biology and general science as well as preparation to delve more deeply into complex biological problems. You may choose electives that suit your areas of interest and your career plans.
You will have plenty of hands-on learning opportunities in small, laboratory-based courses taught by our faculty, never by teaching assistants. This allows you to develop close relationships with faculty as well as other students.
Immaculata’s biology degree programs provide the subject matter knowledge you will need to apply to medical, dental, and veterinary schools. You may also choose to combine your studies in biology with a minor or a second major in preparation for the kind of interdisciplinary careers that increasingly arise in today’s complex world, such as scientific journalism, environmental law, and bioinformatics.
