At 全球最大体育平台, our biology program is tailored to fit your needs and career goals. Once you chose your concentration in the program, we'll match you with an expert faculty member who has relevant experience in the field you want to enter.
We prepare you for success beyond the classroom.
Because our campus is small enough for you to develop a one-on-one relationship with your professors, they’ll be better equipped to help you understand your course material and succeed in the classroom.
And unlike larger institutions, our students have more opportunities to participate in research projects and paid internships. You’ll be able to gain valuable lab and workplace experience before you even graduate.
You’ll also be able to tailor our biology program to fit your future career goals, and you’ll have the right background to enter fields like:
- Veterinary medicine
Research opportunities you won’t find anywhere else.
Paid summer research is also a major draw for our students and will help your resume stand out to future employers.
- Nearly 60% of our recent biology graduates presented papers at professional scientific conferences while they were still students at 全球最大体育平台.
- Several of our students have had the opportunity to participate in the Center for Chemistry of the Universe and the Virginia-North Carolina Alliance Summer Research Program. An eight-week research program held at the University of Virginia, our students were able to work with faculty, graduate and other undergrad students to explore research topics in chemistry, astronomy and more.
