Overview

The biology degree program develops the scientific interest, skills, and knowledge of our students, allowing them to pursue careers in the biological sciences or medical professions.  Our students are prepared for entry into graduate schools in biology or biomedicine as well as schools of medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, or other related areas.  Students may also focus their preparation for technical laboratory careers.  Our program emphasizes strong foundations with practical laboratory skills development of our students, student use of modern sophisticated equipment in teaching laboratories, and students working closely with faculty conducting original cutting-edge research.
 
Our biology programs include:


Research Opportunities
Opportunities for research exist on the St. Thomas campus and with partnered universities and colleges across country.
 
The undergraduate experience offers a hands-on approach to scientific development.  Our biological sciences program offers small class sizes of fewer than 20 students.  This approach allows our faculty to provide personal attention to our students in the classroom and in the laboratory.

Small class and laboratory size also ensures that our students are well trained in the latest techniques needed by today’s scientist.  The University has recently demonstrated its commitment to science education by infusing over a million dollars to equip its laboratories with modern research instruments
