About This Department
At the undergraduate level, we offer courses in biology, chemistry, physics, and biotechnology to students pursing a major or minor in biology or environmental science, a minor in biotechnology, or a concentration in forensic science.
At the graduate level, we offer a certificate in sustainability practices.
Students and faculty work side by side on original research. Recently students and faculty have explored the effect of climate change on marine life in Narragansett Bay under a National Science Foundation grant. Working with faculty from MIT and Yale as well as from Bryant, they have analyzed soil and fossil samples from China and the Canadian Arctic.
