Get a Hands-On Perspective in Preparation for Multiple Career Paths
Biology is the study of life — from the simplest, one-celled organism to complex ecosystems. But that simple definition only hints at where the field can lead you. With a bachelor's degree in biology from Clarkson, you could pursue a career in healthcare, develop new drugs, protect vulnerable habitats, go on to teach or continue your education in graduate school.
Why Study Biology at Clarkson?
When you study the sciences at Clarkson, doing and learning go hand in hand.
You'll focus on the fundamental concepts of the field, building a foundation in health and biomedical science (human and animal), biotechnology and environmental science.
Through it all, you'll put the concepts you learn to work, both in the lab and Clarkson's rich natural surroundings.
Those are research opportunities you'd typically find at a large university. The best part: we combine them with the small classes and personal attention from faculty that you find at a small college.
What You'll Learn
Your classes will give you an overview of the field while allowing the flexibility to focus on the topics that excite you the most — such as cellular and molecular biology, biotechnology or environmental biology.
If you're interested in the health sciences, the pre-health advising track can guide you to graduate work in veterinary science, medicine or physical or occupational therapy.
You'll take classes including:
- Conservation Biology
- Medical Microbiology
- Molecular and Genome Evolution
- Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine
