Visit the Natural Sciences Department
Interested in medicine, dentistry, life sciences research, or science journalism? Your first step is here.
Rigorous. Interdisciplinary. Pre-professional. The natural sciences major at Fordham prepares you for a wide variety of careers in the life sciences, including medicine, dentistry, nursing, research, and teaching.
You’ll study biology, chemistry, and physics, immunology, physiology, and genetics, among other subjects. You’ll join our faculty in research projects on campus and at renowned institutions. You’ll also design and present your own research.
We integrate the theory and practice of science to provide a framework for exploring questions of ethics. As part of a Jesuit university, we strongly believe in the importance of using education to help others—and to develop the self.
That’s why you’ll learn more than natural sciences here. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, history, literature, languages, and the performing arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education.
We want you to excel in your field—and as a human being.
