By majoring in biology, students develop a broad understanding of the organization and processes of life, from molecules and cells through organs and organ systems to populations, species, ecosystems, and evolution.
The cell and molecular biology major includes the background in mathematics, chemistry, and physics needed in the study of biology and the practical scientific skills associated with each of these subject areas.
Biology offers a joint BS/PhD program that allows Northeastern undergraduate biology majors to use undergraduate course sharing and undergraduate research to accelerate their time to a PhD.
The PlusOne Program at Northeastern University allows students to accelerate their study by applying graduate credits taken as an undergraduate toward both an undergraduate and a graduate degree.
The MS in Biotechnology is an innovative graduate program designed to allow students to pursue advanced training and excel in science while simultaneously developing highly valued business skills.
The biochemistry program combines the principles of biology and chemistry, as underpinned by mathematics and physics, to address the core concepts developed by the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
A PlusOne degree program can accelerate receipt of a graduate degree and reduce its cost, since in most cases, a PlusOne degree student can earn a graduate degree with only one additional year of study beyond the Bachelor’s.
The PlusOne Program at Northeastern University allows students to accelerate their study by applying graduate credits taken as an undergraduate toward both an undergraduate and a graduate degree in an intensive five-year period of study including significant research experience.
The behavioral neuroscience program combines the disciplines of biology and psychology to appreciate the scope of behavior and then understand how the behavior of humans and animals is controlled by physiological systems.
