The Biology program emphasizes research, field work on our 2,840 acres, and faculty-student collaboration.
The best way to learn science is to do science. At Sweet Briar, our small classes are perfect for giving students ample opportunities to engage in hands-on learning both in and outside the classroom and laboratory.
Sweet Briar offers a broad program for students interested in careers in biological and environmental research, teaching and consulting, as well as health and veterinary professions. Students may add secondary teaching licensure in biology to their degree.
You will gain skills and confidence as you progress to more complex investigations in intermediate and advanced courses.
