At Brown, students work alongside faculty experts to generate new discoveries and set the stage for scientific breakthroughs.

Undergraduate Education

The Program in Biology gives students the opportunity to learn, conduct groundbreaking research, and make an impact by finding solutions to complex problems.

The basic science departments of the Program in Biology offer courses at all levels of biology: molecular, cellular, organismal and population, and concentration programs with varying degrees of multidisciplinary or specialty foci.

There is a vast range of collaborative opportunities for independent study and research under the mentorship of the faculty. Faculty maintain research programs at the cutting edge of their fields. The close administrative relationship with the Warren Alpert Medical School offers additional opportunities for blending fundamental biology and clinical sciences in research projects at Brown-affiliated hospitals. These research opportunities are a hallmark of our programs; students may navigate this information at the website of the Biology Undergraduate Education Office.
