Considering a career in field biology, DNA research, teaching, medicine, physical therapy or any other area of science? If the answer is yes, then the Biology department at Siena Heights University can support you on your learning journey!

The Biology department offers its students unique and distinguishing opportunities:
• As early as freshman year, Siena Heights University students can gain early acceptance into medical, dental, or pharmacy school at the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine.
• Students interested in the health sciences can complete advanced coursework at SHU that can lead to physical therapy certifications from the Gray Institute.
• In partnership with the Adrian Dominican Sisters, biology students explore a 7-acre field site to learn permaculture (permanent-agriculture), an ethical design system for land use that emphasizes sustainability, integration, and cooperation with natural systems.
• First-year students can join faculty-led research teams, such as our Sustainability Tracking, Assessment, and Rating System (STARS) group research project.

Where your educational journey leads you depends in part on where you start. In the Biology department, our approach to education, which combines a supportive community learning environment with a broad spectrum of challenging courses, in-depth lab and field experiences, and intensive research projects, has successfully prepared our graduates for their future careers.

Whether you are interested in our traditional four-year path or are transferring from another school, you are invited to visit the Science department at Siena Heights University and to experience how our learning community can assist you on your educational journey.
