Majoring in biology at The Catholic University of America opens up a vast array of opportunities for employment and post-graduate study. Many of our graduates go to medical school or pursue advanced degrees in microbiology, genetics, zoology or other related fields. Students also have the ability to begin working toward a master's in biotechnology at Catholic University during their junior year, allowing them to graduate with a master's in five years. Our graduates are working in biochemistry, toxicology, biomedical research, the pharmaceutical industry, and many other bioscience careers.
All our student laboratories are developed and taught by faculty incorporating the basic concepts of modern cell and molecular biology. The fact that our teaching laboratories are taught by faculty members is rare - considering that most university labs across the country are taught by teaching assistants. We have an excellent student/faculty ratio resulting in small class sizes and a commitment to personal attention and academic advising. Our highly accessible faculty fosters a great deal of interaction. Students receive considerable assistance with coursework, academic, employment and career advice.
