Why Choose Biology at RSU?
Biology students graduate with the skills, knowledge and experience they need to achieve their personal and professional goals. With small class sizes and helpful, experienced faculty, students leave RSU ready to attend graduate school or start their careers.
The curriculum in the Medical/Molecular option is a proven preparatory track for students endeavoring to enter professional health fields, with graduates placed in graduate medical programs across the region.
Students who study Environmental Conservation graduate prepared to make a difference in the environment. The curriculum emphasizes statistics and ecological toxicology while addressing contemporary conservation issues such as ecosystem management, and landscape ecology.
Both degrees are augmented with individual research leading to presentation of scientific papers and internships for successful post-graduate and professional careers.
“My experience at RSU was pivotal to help me achieve my career goals. I was a member of the Honors Program and majored in medical/molecular biology. Both programs provided me the skills and knowledge to not only get accepted into medical school but excel amongst my peers who attended other universities. The professors at RSU were one of the most substantial contributors to my undergraduate success. Because classes are intimately sized, I had free reign to ask them questions and receive extensive personal assistance with unclear topics.”
