Visit the Biological Sciences Department
Read the story of life on Earth as it’s written in our molecules, cells, creatures, and environment.
What is life, at the fundamental level? What is its infrastructure? How do its mechanisms and processes work? We ask big questions in Department of Biological Sciences at Fordham. You learn the answers in the class, in the lab, and on site at several of New York City’s leading scientific institutions.
Our courses provide a broad basis for understanding life at the molecular, cellular, organismal, and ecological levels. You’ll study the web of life—and tease out its individual strands in one of our hands-on, high-tech labs or research centers.
Of course, you’ll learn more than biological sciences here. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, economics, mathematics, languages, and the performing arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education.
