Biology Program Overview
At the University of Providence, we believe in “doing science.”
We feel it is particularly important to allow our students to get hands-on experience in their field of study; as such one of the guiding philosophies for the Biology program is to encourage and support undergraduate research. At the University of Providence, our professors work with you on exploring your research interests, and designing a research project unique to you. The small professor-to-student ratio in all classes and the opportunity for one-on-one research and thesis mentoring at the upper-classman level provides unique opportunities to create close working relationships between students and faculty. We also provide students a variety of internship opportunities, allowing them to get practical experience in their area of interest. The integration of the University of Providence’s Catholic mission with the exploration of science creates opportunities to explore and develop the whole person in science and society. The University offers specialized concentrations to support the Biology major, to further support students with a specific career in mind. These concentrations are in the following areas: Health Professions, Physiology, and Wildlife Ecology.
