Achievement in the Biology

Real world learning is central to MCU’s Biology degree program. With both BS and BA degrees available, we provide an in-depth, cross-disciplinary experience that allows students to understand how their research fits into the bigger picture of solving real problems such as diabetes.


STEM is not just a buzzword here, it’s crafted into the curriculum and reinforced with student/professor contact both in the classroom and in the lab.
