The Biology Department at the University of Scranton is one of the most dynamic departments in the university, and home to one of the largest majors on campus.
Our small class sizes allow students close personal interaction with our faculty, allowing close collaboration in the learning environments and instruction directed towards the individual student. Many of our laboratory courses integrate independent research and inquiry, allowing students to be active participants in the learning process. With our focus on one-on-one interaction, our students can learn gain in-depth experience in the process of science, learn laboratory techniques, as well as share in the excitement of scientific discovery. This encourages students to take charge of their education.As a Jesuit university, we believe that extracurricular involvement and service are integral aspects of University life. Students and faculty are involved in several activities that go beyond the scope of the classroom.
