Our degree programs...
Biology encompasses all of the processes and patterns that characterize living cell, organisms, and ecosystems. Building on recent advances in the molecular, cellular, organismal, and ecological disciplines, modern biological science offers students a rich framework that can launch a career with a wide variety of skills for discoveries within cells, organ systems, species, and even ecosystems in which we live.
B.S. program is available.
Students in the Bioinformatics program develop the skills
necessary for analyzing the data being generated by Next
Generation Sequencing, proteomics, metabolomics, and other
cutting-edge technologies. Students develop
their understanding of biology and molecular genetics, as well
as statistics and computer science, giving them many career options.
B.S., M.S., 4+1 B.S./M.S., and molecular lab focused option programs are available.
Through coursework, fieldwork, lab analyses, research, group projects, and a yearlong capstone project, students in Environmental Science develop interdisciplinary problem solving skills (Science, Social Science, and Humanities) to help them understand natural systems and how to address human impacts on these systems.
BS, MS, 4+1 BS/MS, and double major programs are available, in addition to two Environmental Science Minors.
Biotechnology and Molecular Bioscience
Students enrolled in the Biotechnology and Molecular Bioscience Program at RIT will be exposed to dynamic professors who are leaders in their fields both in the class room for tradition instruction and also in the classroom and research laboratories for experiential learning.
B.S. program is available with concentrations.
