Biology majors at Bucknell study the very essence of life – from the molecular level to the origin of species.
You'll work with world-renowned professors attempting to find the answers to everything from the death of bats to why humans age. Classroom work is supplemented with lab research and field excursions that give students an intimate view of the lives of working biologists.
Students gain exposure to current scientific issues, theories and practical applications of biology.
Related fields of study available at Bucknell include animal behavior, environmental studies, cell biology, biochemistry, biomedical engineering and neuroscience.
We have a seminar program brings students and faculty together to discuss research in progress or to hear talks by visiting scientists.
