Biology

Experiential Learning in a Class All Its Own

As a Biology major at Arcadia, you won’t just dabble in research. You’ll play an active role. You won’t just read other people’s studies. You’ll have the opportunity to carry out and co-author studies of your own in fields including neurobiology, bioinformatics, behavior, evolution, ecology, cell and molecular biology, immunology, and more. And you won’t just know your teachers from class. You’ll be able to work with them one-on-one outside of the classroom. 

To excel in today’s competitive environment, it’s important to stand out. At Arcadia, it’s hard to stand anywhere else.
