Undergraduate Biology Degrees

We want you to be an active agent in your own education. Our undergraduate degree programs prepare you to be a scientifically critical thinker, explorer and skilled biologist.

  • You might determine genetic risk factors underlying atherosclerosis, or slog around in Great Bay estuary following a horseshoe crab with a sonar transmitter.
  • In the expansive natural laboratory surrounding the University, you might study the impact of radio transmission and wind towers on bird behavior or the construction of roads on brook trout habitat.
  • You might study the impacts of environmental toxins and pharmaceuticals on physiology and behavior or the effects of elevation on the prevalence of rare plants.
  • At the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest just 15 miles from campus, you might capture and track salamanders in one of the premier ecosystem study sites in the world.
