For Students

Buffalo State biology students are afforded amazing opportunities every day. From on-campus research opportunities to locally based internships, biology majors are prepared to pursue careers or graduate studies in biology or to teach biology and general science.

Biology Department faculty provide instruction, guidance, and advisement to majors and have the professional connections to secure placement in field work and internships. 

 

Advisement

Advisement

All biology majors must meet with their academic adviser prior to registration. Your adviser will help you select appropriate courses based on your degree requirements, your academic performance, and your career goals. Your adviser will also make you aware of special opportunities in the department such as internships, independent research, the honors program, study abroad, etc.

Advisement

Careers and Internships

Biology majors are prepared for one of three main pursuits after graduation: positions as biologists performing laboratory, field, or quality-control work; teaching biology and general science in grades 7–12; or graduate study. The Biology Department offers several categories of internships, including internships in the medical or allied health fields, in basic or applied research, in zoo or museum work, and in biotechnology firms.

Advisement

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research is one of the most powerful ways for students to learn. Biology students take part in applied research projects at Buffalo State's Great Lakes Center and locally at veterinary hospitals, wildlife refuges, and aquariums.
