About This Department

Many solutions to the world’s problems are rooted in the sciences. Whether you are studying microorganisms or researching treatments and cures for diseases, understanding the foundations of the biological sciences—and how they apply to medicine—is crucial for students who want to become problem solvers and leaders in an increasingly complex and interconnected world.

Bryant Biological and Biomedical Sciences students will receive a comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and immersive education. They will develop the knowledge and analytical skills needed to excel in the many exciting careers in the biological and biomedical fields. Experiential education is a hallmark of the Bryant education, and there are many opportunities—both inside and outside the classroom and labs—for students to gain hands-on experience in research, internships, practicums, and travel.

Undergraduates often collaborate with faculty on research that is published and presented at conferences. Opportunities for this kind of collaboration, often only available to graduate students at other institutions, is widely available to science students at Bryant.

With guidance from faculty who mentor students through their time at Bryant, graduates successfully pursue careers in clinical medicine, academia, industry, and business. Many students build strong mentoring relationships with faculty that often last well beyond their time at Bryant as they grow through the phases of their successful careers.

We wish to congratulate biology major Hannah Couture (’20) as she was accepted to every Doctor of Physical Therapy program she applied to and is off to Belmont University in the Fall.  She credits much of her success to her coursework, leadership opportunities, her research on biomechanical modeling of ligaments and the meaningful faculty relationships she forged as a science student at Bryant.
