The Schmid College of Science and Technology offers a degree that gives all categories of students, from the pre-med major to the future bioscientist a foundation in the scientific study of life.
Our committed faculty guide students in their study of the biological sciences. Among them, you will find:
- a winner of the Gene E. Likens Award from the Ecological Society of America
- a fellow from the American Association for Advancement of Science, and
- a fellow for SENCER leadership.
Since 2003, faculty have co-authored peer-reviewed publications with 43 students, with two such articles featured in the well-regarded Journal of Neuroscience and the Journal of Learning and Memory. Recently, one of their students was nationally recognized for his research when he won the prestigious David Bruce Award for Undergraduate Research given by the American Physiological Society. Undergraduate students are not only students in the classroom but also partners in research and in the advancement of scientific knowledge.
The biological sciences program builds in enough flexibility to ensure that students are well prepared for the job market and for graduate programs such as biology, health, and physical therapy. A remarkable 65% of our students are enrolled in graduate programs within three years of graduation.
