Explore the diversity of modern biology and biotech.
In the Biology Department at Worcester State University, we provide you with a solid understanding of the biological sciences through a dynamic integration of classroom learning, laboratory investigation, and fieldwork. Our department offers majors in biology and biotechnology—the only public program of its kind in Massachusetts—as well as a minor in biology. We also collaborate with the Psychology Department to offer an interdisciplinary minor in psychobiology. Our accomplished professors illuminate the diversity of modern biology in courses like Ecology, Genetics, and Microbiology. Through our challenging curriculum, you’ll hone important critical thinking, problem-solving, and technical skills that are relevant to a wide array of disciplines including chemistry, psychology, medicine, and pharmacology.
