You will be challenged with countless hands-on learning experiences and many opportunities to do real science, both in your classes and in federally-funded research laboratories. Every biology major completes a year-long research project. Many students present this work at local undergraduate meetings and even international scientific conferences.
At NEC, you will have opportunities for professional internships, biology-related travel courses, earning credits for getting certified as a biology teacher, and employment in our Summer Undergraduate Research Program. We will help you attain your career goals, whether that be graduate school or employment in such places as educational institutions, federal agencies, pharmaceutical companies, and private industry.
