“My research experience here has enriched my understanding of biology and was also a great way to discover opportunities that I may wish to pursue after graduating.”– Richard C.


Biology investigates the origin, structure and function of all life forms. From microscopic cells to enormous ecosystems, it is a vast and endlessly fascinating field.

At Saint Peter’s University your study begins with a series of courses that give you an introduction to the major branches of biology.

After that, we help you strategically choose elective courses to support your career goals.

Perhaps you’d like to work in medicine? Or maybe the emerging field of cytotechnology?  Or do you gravitate toward forensic science?

Whatever your interest you can choose electives and special research projects to provide the in-depth learning experience needed for your career, professional and graduate studies, and advanced research.
