Federated Departments of Biological Sciences·

The Federated Departments of Biological Sciences is a collaboration between NJIT and Rutgers University-Newark. Federation is a formal agreement between the two universities to coordinate many activities of their respective Departments of Biological Sciences. The goal is to increase the quality of teaching and research by drawing from the larger, combined resource base. In particular, the curriculum and requirements of both the undergraduate Major in Biological Sciences and the various Graduate options are the same for both institutions, and students may take courses on both campus to fulfill those requirements. Federation also involves the sharing of office and laboratory facilities, the coordination of research, and long-term strategic planning.


Academic Advising

The advising page contains the Biology Faculty that advise students regarding the Biology Program, including Transfer Credit Advising. A listing of Biology Advisors, their office hours, and location can be found here. Also included is the biology curriculum checklists for the various programs that the Department of Biological Sciences offers. Students are encouraged to use this tool as a reference, while working towards their degree.
