About the Biology Program
The biology program at Westminster provides environments for active learning both in and out of the classroom. Through hands-on, interdisciplinary coursework and guidance from dedicated faculty mentors, you'll construct your own knowledge and pursue your personal passions and interests.
All students participate in research projects in Biology classrooms. For a deeper dive, apply for a faculty-mentored summer experience. Applications for summer undergraduate research projects are due in the spring semester.
