At Saint Anselm College your studies in Biology go beyond classroom lectures, and laboratory experiments. Our curriculum is diverse, and in depth, offering several specialized courses and dozens of opportunities for enrichment.

You will find an emphasis on research and experiential learning, with facilities and courses designed specifically for hands-on investigation. Our faculty will mentor you joining you in the classroom, the laboratory, and in the field.

Whether you prefer studying botany in our greenhouse, health sciences in our laboratories, or tropical biology on a field study in Belize, our program will prepare you for graduate studies or a career in the sciences.


Students interested in participating in internships for credit as part of their course of study are encouraged to contact Professor Daniel Lavoie. For a sample list of past internships completed by students in the Biology Department, please see below.
