WHY BIOLOGY AT ALBRIGHT?

Albright’s class sizes are small, and you’ll find one-on-one attention from faculty members to be a distinguishing feature of your science classes. Indeed, all members of the Biology Department faculty are available for advising and counseling in areas related to the biological sciences.

Studying in a state-of-the-art laboratory facility, which opened in fall 2010, crowns the experience. With fully modern instrumentation and hands-on learning opportunities, you not only learn about biology, you do biology. For example, students receive instruction in transmission and scanning electron microscopy to evaluate cells and tissues of plant and animal origin, deploy modern water quality sampling equipment, develop a geographic information system, and apply gene sequencing techniques to either field and lab samples.
