The Biology program at New Paltz offers students excellent preparation for graduate school, a career in industry, for medical school or for one of the many allied health fields. We offer unparalleled faculty-mentored research opportunities and five different major tracks: cellular and molecular biology; organismal and environmental biology; a general BA track in biology; as well as childhood education/biology and secondary education/biology.
