Why Study Biology?
Studying biology will enable students to understand the evolution, growth and function of living organisms, as well as an understanding of how those organisms interact with others in their respective environments. Courses in biology provide students with a foundation for more specialized and advanced areas of study in a baccalaureate program. Upon completing the program, students will be prepared for transfer to a four-year institution where they can further their education in areas such as education, ecology, scientific or technical writing, health professions, or related areas.
Students interested in biology often pursue the following degree programs:
Meet our faculty
Many of our science faculty have done lab-based research and are able to bring that unique experience to our students. Our distinguished faculty of over 100 full-time and 400 part-time members includes numerous Fulbright Scholars, SUNY Chancellor’s Award winners and published authors. Average class size of 22 allows faculty members to work one-on-one with students.
