Be a student of life
With the B.S. in biology program from Lynn University, you’ll learn from scientists and other experts in biology, and gain broad backgrounds in science and math. These studies will give you a strong foundation for the medical field.
As a biology major, you’ll work hands-on in laboratory experiments and have the opportunity to engage in faculty-mentored research projects. From genetics to ecology, all courses in this biology program are designed specifically to help pre-med students understand how other fields such as chemistry, physics and math apply to biology/pre-med.
What you’ll learn in the biology/pre-med program
- Genetics, molecular biology, anatomy, ecology, evolution and organic chemistry
- Application of the scientific process to assess new projects and information
- Analyze data, carry out biological lab techniques and develop solutions to biological problems
Learning doesn’t get more innovative than this.
At Lynn University, we embrace technology by encouraging our students to engage with course content through iPads, and our professors can develop custom course materials.
As a biology major at Lynn, you'll study fascinating corners of our living world, combining core curriculum and degree-specific classes right from the start. That means you can start studying the subjects that most interest you as early as your first semester.
SCI 260 Human Anatomy and Physiology and Lab
Discover basic human anatomy and physiology. Gain a comprehensive understanding of the cellular and tissue structure function of the skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, digestive, nervous, respiratory, excretory, endocrine and reproductive systems.
SCI 110 The Biological World and Lab
Get an introduction to the life-supported systems of nature, emphasizing the diversity and adaptations of organisms in the evolutionary perspective.
SCI 360 Ecology and Lab
Explore ecosystems at various levels of pattern and process, broadly emphasizing material/energy interrelationships in concept, time and space.
