Biology Research: Hands-On Science

The Biology Program is built on a foundation of hands-on student involvement, and opportunities for independent laboratory and field studies abound. One of the hallmarks of a Purchase College education is the senior project. Biology students carry out original research under the direction of a faculty member. Results from many senior projects have been published in scientific journals, and our seniors present the results of their research at our annual Natural & Social Sciences Student Symposium in April.
