Albright’s Biology Department prepares you with the education and experience needed for graduate or professional study in a wide variety of fields, as well as for post-graduate employment in industry, research, education and business. We emphasize the close relationship of biology to other scientific disciplines, such as mathematics, chemistry and physics, and also stress the importance of biology in society and within the historical liberal arts tradition.
That liberal arts focus is key. Because every scientist must communicate effectively, most biology courses at the College require lab reports, research papers and presentations. And because critical thinking will make you a better scientist, you’ll learn to evaluate original scientific literature and to understand advanced concepts in biology.
