The DeSales Biology major is a great degree for careers in healthcare, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical research, forensics, education, environmental science, and more.
Interested in Medical School? You'll be carefully advised through all of the prerequisite courses necessary to prepare for the medical college admission test (MCAT).
If you begin as a freshman, you can typically take the MCAT following your junior year.
Our biology program includes coursework required by most professional —MD, DO, DVM, DMD, etc. — and graduate schools — Masters or PhD.
You'll be working in labs starting from day one: research and the methodology of science are deeply integrated into your studies.
DeSales biology labs rival (and beat!) some of the best schools in the nation.
Our impressive Cell Culture Suite can accommodate up to 18 students simultaneously — which means you'll get more hands-on learning than at most other schools. And, all of our lab equipment is exclusively for undergraduate use, either as part of academic courses or independent research.
