From health care to the environment to agriculture, new research in biology affects our lives on a daily basis, making this dynamic field a good fit for the serious science student as well as the non-major with a broad interest in the natural world.
Biology students at Kenyon learn to make connections between life processes in both the classroom and the laboratory. In fact, beginning in the first year of study, biology students are engaged in lab and research projects of consequence that are unparalleled in most undergraduate biology programs.
At Kenyon, the biology department integrates the research of faculty members into the curriculum and gives advanced students access to the latest discoveries in molecular genetics and ecosystem ecology. Majors are encouraged to co-author scientific papers, serve as teaching proctors, and conduct independent research.
