The Department of Biological Sciences offers comprehensive opportunities for study and research, with diplomas issued jointly by NJIT and Rutgers University.
The Federated Department of Biological Sciences is committed to equal opportunity and respect for all students, staff and faculty, and does not tolerate discrimination or harassment in any form. We welcome a diverse set of voices, because it is right to do so, and because diversity of experience and thought leads to creativity of ideas and, ultimately, to better science. If you are from a group that is under-represented in science, or in biology specifically, we encourage you to consider a degree, and ultimately a career, in biology.
The Department of Biological Sciences offers Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral Degrees.
Undergraduate Majors and Minors
Undergraduate majors and minors integrate biology, mathematics, computer science, physics and chemistry. This approach prepares students for the study of biology in the 21st century.
Graduate degree programs provide advanced knowledge in biology and research. The master's program is designed for students looking for more in-depth knowledge of biology, while the doctoral program is for students interested in advanced research.
