Department of Biology


Welcome to the Department of Biology

Our department is committed to provide students with a strong foundation in Biology and Chemistry.  Students are challenged to develop critical thinking, reasoning and technical skills as they study the natural world. 

The Biology BA program is designed for students who desire a liberal arts education with a solid foundation in biology. Students are prepared for graduate study in biology or toward careers in other disciplines that require a significant background in biology. This is the first natural science degree offered by Nyack College.
