Biology Degree

Biology Degree Programs

In the recent years, biology has been modernized with the development of new and sophisticated techniques in molecular and cellular biology, genomics, and bioinformatics. These techniques are utilized today in various areas of research, from genetics and differentiation to biomedicine, field studies, and animal behavior. Our department’s program of study and research reflect this modern view of biology.

Students are exposed to modern concepts, and current methods of experimentation in molecular biology, genomics, and field biology within introductory courses taken at the outset of their studies. Motivated students have the opportunity to choose advanced courses, which are given in the specialized areas of faculty research.

Medical School Preparation and Career Success

The Biology program at UB provides an outstanding preparation for careers in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, naturopathic medicine, chiropractic, allied health professions and related fields, in research and academia.  Graduates of UB’s biology department have a remarkable record of success in acceptance into graduate and professional schools (medical), and in establishing notable careers in the biomedical sciences.

The University of Bridgeport, in consultation with the leadership of the University of Connecticut, School of Pharmacy, has developed a pre-pharmacy curriculum that meets the requirements for admission into the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) Program offered by the University of Connecticut, School of Pharmacy. This pre-pharmacy curriculum may be completed under the auspices of either the Biology or Health Sciences program.

The Biology program offers curricula leading to a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree.

Francis Bacon said that “knowledge is power,” and nowhere is that more evident than in the development of biology-related disciplines and technologies.
