Graduate Programs


The Biology Department at SUNY Fredonia offers the smaller class sizes and individualized advising of a small college, coupled with the diverse programs and research opportunities found at a large university. You’ll find the best of both worlds in Biology at SUNY Fredonia.

Our courses take students outside the classroom and into the laboratory and field to learn science by doing it. They use sophisticated instruments and techniques to study genetic regulation and human physiology. They go to Yellowstone National Park to study the intricacy of ecosystems, and to the Bahamas to study marine biology.

Our students work hard and have fun doing it.
