Welcome to the Biology Program
Welcome from the Biology Department
The Biology Program at the University of the District of Columbia, within the College of Arts and Sciences, offers two academic degrees in biology:
- Bachelor of Science
- Master of Science in Cancer Biology, Prevention, and Control.
This program places emphasis on inquiry-based learning and real-world experiences, including research opportunities and visits with leading professionals in the field. Biology students at UDC are fully involved in the research life of the university, and the program aims to provide undergraduate research experiences to all biology majors to better prepare them for graduate study or specialized careers. The program also offers courses for non-biology majors to gain a broad undergraduate education in the biological sciences. Graduate students have the opportunity to work with expert faculty researchers at Georgetown University’s Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.
