Program Overview

The Master of Science in Biology provides students with a solid and comprehensive background in the field of biological sciences, including molecular biology, cell biology, physiology, genetics, microbiology, human biology and developmental biology. Upon completion of the program, students are prepared to enter a PhD program, medical or dental schools; work in academic, industrial or government research laboratories; or teach biologically related courses at the community college level or at the K-12 grade level (providing the student holds the appropriate New York state teaching certificate). Small class sizes and close working relationships with the advisor and advisory committee are ideal for students seeking a rigorous graduate education in a small-college atmosphere. A limited number of graduate teaching and research assistantships are available.

Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the program, students will be able to:

  • Use appropriate biological terminology to clearly communicate scientific results in oral presentations and written reports targeting for a variety of audiences.
  • Develop a testable hypothesis and design appropriate experiments to solve biological problems.
  • Critically evaluate and interpret experimental results.
  • Solve quantitative problems that are routinely encountered in research laboratories using basic mathematical and statistical skills.
  • Competently employ common laboratory equipment and develop an understanding of relevant theory, strengths and limitations for techniques.
  • Integrate concepts in cellular and molecular biology to explain higher level biological systems.
