Your experiences in our classrooms and labs will teach you scientific research methods and reporting; your experiences interning at Boston's premier hospitals and research facilities will deepen your knowledge and broaden your network.
At Suffolk, you can earn either a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science in Biology, depending on your area of focus. You’ll begin with a well-rounded assortment of courses in both the lab and classroom focusing on evolution, genetics, ecology, bioethics, and physiology. If you have a specific professional interest, you might choose one of our three concentration options.
You can also join The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) and the Health Careers Club, which provides faculty-guided research opportunities to give you hands-on experience in the lab and field. The Arthur J. West Alumni Seminar Series allows you to network with and learn from alumni healthcare leaders. Suffolk is also home to the Chi Kappa chapter of the National Biological Honor Society.
Internships for biology majors abound here in Boston. Massachusetts General Hospital and Massachusetts Eye & Ear Institute are a short walk from our campus. The Longwood Medical and Academic Area—home to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston Children's Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, and more—is an easy T ride away. And those are just some of your many options.
