Biology
Bachelor of Science (BS)
Bryant University in Smithfield, RI
Accomplished educators guide you as you create your path among the five tracks of our Biology major: General Biology, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Pre-Health, Research Intensive, or Ecology and Conservation. Work closely with faculty in small classes and state-of-the-art labs. Biology, the study of life, is the most all-encompassing of the sciences. Understanding basic life processes requires working in many areas in an integrated way. Students who major in Biology engage in a curriculum that explores the breadth of the biological sciences. They develop hands-on laboratory skills, and have the opportunity to participate in laboratory and field research projects, under the direction of a faculty mentor. The biology program provides a solid foundation in basic scientific knowledge. Every student will take a common set of core classes providing this initial set of core competencies that will be built upon and reinforced as you progress through intermediate level courses. Once the core is complete, students can enter into one of the five advisory tracks to complete the remaining credits required for the major that are designed to assist in course selection based on individual career goals and needs. These tracks are general biology, cellular and molecular biology, pre-health, ecology and conservation and research intensive. With our multiple track program, Biology majors are prepared for a wide array of opportunities including careers in the health sciences, biomedical research, physical therapy, biotechnology, pharmaceutical science, environmental biology, food science, and industrial research.
