About this program

Biology, B.S.

At Siena Heights, you are part of an extended family that meets regularly inside and outside of the classroom. In addition to hands-on collaborative learning, students also gather regularly for field trips, special lectures, community projects, or simply to study.

Working with faculty mentors, students conduct meaningful field and/or lab research with data analysis. Siena Heights University biology students have won numerous national research awards over the past few years.

SHU biology graduates have a 95 percent acceptance rate into medical, chiropractic, podiatric, veterinary, and graduate school.

The Biology department offers its students unique and distinguishing opportunities:

  • As early as freshman year, Siena Heights University students can gain early acceptance into medical, dental, or pharmacy school at the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine.
  • In partnership with the Adrian Dominican Sisters, biology students explore a 7-acre field site to learn permaculture (permanent-agriculture), an ethical design system for land use that emphasizes sustainability, integration, and cooperation with natural systems.
  • First-year students can join faculty-led research teams, such as our Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System (STARS) group research project.

Where your educational journey leads you depends in part on where you start. In the Biology department, our approach to education, which combines a supportive community learning environment with a broad spectrum of challenging courses, in-depth lab and field experiences, and intensive research projects, has successfully prepared our graduates for their future careers.
