Majors

Biology Major at Susquehanna University

Hands-on research is a hallmark of our biology program. Most undergraduate programs limit you to a semester-long senior research project, but here you can choose to study for a full year alongside a faculty expert. Do so in our state-of-the-art science center equipped for workshop-style classes, an 87-acre field station right on campus or our dedicated laboratory for freshwater research.
