Biology Department

Welcome! The Fredonia Biology Department offers the most up-to-date facilities, cutting edge instrumentation and technology of any undergraduate biology department in New York State. Our award winning faculty blend outstanding instruction with research and professional learning opportunities for every student enrolled in our programs. All of this translates into an outstanding experience for our students.

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 in our new Science Center 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. They perform internships at health care facilities to prepare for careers as health professionals.

Are you ready for the challenge? Our students work hard and take pride in their success. Learn more and come join them!
