Welcome to Undergraduate Biology

Stony Brook University is one of the nation's top public research universities and our biological sciences departments are among the best in the country. There are exciting opportunities for Biology Majors at Stony Brook. The Biology Core courses are the foundation for all life science and pre-health programs on campus. Revised in 2007, the Core courses are designed around discovery-based laboratory activities that develop student performance in laboratory and research process. Advanced Study: At the advanced level, biology students may elect to specialize in Developmental Genetics, Ecology & Evolution, Environmental Biology, Interdisciplinary Biology, Neuroscience, Quantitative Biology and Bioinformatics, or Bioengineering. The advanced tracks relate to areas of research excellence at Stony Brook and can provide direct links to faculty-sponsored independent research. Research Opportunities: Stony Brook undergraduates benefit from being able to work one-on-one with leading scholars and research scientists. Many of the Life Sciences students engage in research in the Centers for Molecular Medicine, the Life Sciences departments, the School of Medicine, and even at sites off campus. Facilities: Stony Brook Biology is housed in a state-of-the-art facility, the Biology Learning Laboratories (BLL). This undergraduate facility is linked structurally and thematically to the research laboratories in the Centers for Molecular Medicine and the Life Sciences buildings. The BLL houses instructional laboratories, fully equipped support facilities, and advising and administrative offices. The 15 instructional laboratories in the BLL offer research-grade equipment and close proximity to scientists working to solve important and exciting questions in Life Sciences.
