Students who major in Biology at MBC integrate technique and theory. Whether they are contributing to faculty research or working on a self-designed project, biology majors have access to equipment and the opportunity to perform real research. A demanding senior project gives biology majors the chance to experience the science at a higher level of study and make an impression in graduate school and beyond.
Students can pursue a BS or a BA with a major in biology. Biology is also available as a minor.
Biology is part of Mary Baldwin’s School of Science and is available through the College for Women and Adult Degree Program* in Staunton.
