The biology major immerses you in the study of biology with classroom, laboratory and field work addressing bioethics and stewardship. We provide academically rigorous preparation for graduate school in medical fields, biotechnology or environmental science research. Both BA and BS degrees are now offered in Biology (see catalog for details).
Our program will engage you in careful reflection on the relationship of the life sciences to the Christian faith. You will study the foundational aspects of biology—subcellular, cellular, organismal and ecological—and learn that science is a process understood through research and the clear communication of results. You will be encouraged to get involved in research, practical training and experience either on campus via co-ops or internships. A secondary education double major is also an option.
WHERE GRADS GO
Our students prepare for graduate and professional programs and for the workplace. Graduates have been placed in many areas that make use of their acquired skills that include, but are not limited to:
Gordon College, located only three miles from the Atlantic Ocean, is surrounded by hundreds of acres of protected wetlands, ponds and forests. The campus is also near four major estuaries and its proximity to Boston makes research at businesses, major hospitals and universities accessible. Internship possibilities include:
