The Biology Program at Bridgewater State University provides students with a broad background in the biological sciences, allowing for flexibility in career choices. The overall goal of our program is to expose students to the scientific process and to promote the ability to think critically and to communicate science effectively. Students are the central focus and an integral part of the Department, working side-by-side with faculty who are enthusiastically committed to teaching and research. A strong sense of community is fostered through small class sizes and individualized mentoring from faculty, and this community is reinforced through our departmental seminar series and interactions among students and faculty. Students are encouraged to complete original research projects, which often culminate in publication or presentation at local, national, or international conferences. Faculty and students also use their expertise in outreach efforts to provide service to the University and to middle and high school teachers and students in the Commonwealth, particularly through faculty and staff involvement in the CityLab and Watershed Access Laboratory Programs housed within the Center for the Advancement of Science Education. The Department also fosters scientific literacy and critical thinking for non-science majors via its involvement in the Core Curriculum. Through our Master of Arts in Teaching program, we strive to graduate educators who are well-trained with a strong knowledge base in the biological sciences. Overall, the department trains students who are highly competitive for professional and academic positions in Massachusetts, where biotechnology and education are economic engines.
