Description

A Bridge to Careers in Science, Medicine and Health Care

With two floors of brand new state-of-the-art labs and top-flight professors, your Biology education prepares you to move ahead in a variety of fields, from Science to Medicine to Health Care.

St. Francis College’s Biology program prepares you for medical and graduates school as well as professions in a number of fields. St. Francis graduates currently work as physicians and physician assistants; veterinarians; dentists; podiatrists; scientists; teachers; x-ray technicians; sonographers and nurses.

Biology is the study of living organisms at the molecular, microscopic, and systemic levels and deals with the interrelation of life forms and their environments. Students will learn classical biology and concepts in molecular and cellular biology and biotechnology that are current and cutting-edge areas of study in biology and medicine. Students will be prepared for graduate study, professional training in the medical sciences and allied health fields, teaching, or employment in the industry concerned with the biological sciences.

Besides the traditional classroom experience, biology majors are encouraged to consider the diverse opportunities available through field placements, internships, or semesters at other academic institutions, both domestic and abroad. Taking full advantage of these opportunities requires careful planning, and students are urged to discuss their plans and interests with their academic advisors early. It is also St. Francis College’s goal to acquaint non-science students with the issues presented by both human biology and the physical environment.

The Biology and Health Promotion department offers majors in Biology, Biomedical Science (podiatric ONLY), Medical Technology, and Radiologic Sciences; Radiologic Sciences and Medical Technology are offered in association with NY Methodist Hospital and St. Johns’ Catholic Medical Centers of New York (St. Francis College awards the B.S. degree). The Radiologic Sciences program at NY Methodist Hospital has three areas of concentration: radiography, radiation therapy and diagnostic medical sonography. All programs are supervised by the SFC Biology and Health Promotion Department.
