Biology (B.A., B.S., minor)
Biology majors at Seton Hill are encouraged to ask questions, make observations, evaluate evidence and solve problems. Whether you choose to pursue a medical career, work in a research field or become a teacher, you will learn how living things work, how they interact with one another and how they evolve.
Our experienced Ph.D. faculty will provide you with individualized attention in the classroom and the labs, and will also help to advise you as you make decisions about your future.
Because laboratory courses are small, you will do more than just watch experiments - you will perform them yourself, using the same sophisticated laboratory equipment that your professors use.
As an upperclassman, you'll have the opportunity to take part in ongoing research, both here on campus and through research internships at universities and institutions across the country.
Right here at Seton Hill:
Recent science and health majors at Seton Hill have also participated in research projects at the Mayo Clinic (cell biology), Ohio State University (HIV) and Johns Hopkins University (prostrate cancer).
