As a biology major, you’ll have the unique advantage of studying at our Boston campus and at our research facility in northern Maine. You’ll engage in exciting, hands-on exploration that turns classroom learning into tangible results studying wildlife at the R.S. Friedman Field Station, a 50-acre living laboratory adjacent to Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge.

You’ll gain a solid foundation in both laboratory and classroom science, focusing on evolution, genetics, ecology, bioethics, and physiology. Then your professors will help you choose a concentration in biotechnology or marine science based on your interests and career goals. 

This major is especially collaborative and career-focused: You’ll have the option of joining the Health Careers Club, which provides faculty-guided research opportunities to benefit the department and the community. 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.
