Biology majors learning in the classroom.

Biology

Bachelor of Science

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
