Why Biology at Barry?
Barry’s undergraduate biology program offers small-sized classes, allowing its students to receive individualized attention.
In addition, a vast majority of the program’s lecture courses include laboratory components, allowing students to apply the knowledge they’ve learned in the classroom and gain valuable hands-on experience.
Upon entering the biology program, undergraduate students are partnered with an academic advisor who provides academic support and remains the student’s advisor for the duration of his or her studies at Barry. Students in the program may also have the opportunity to work alongside biology faculty members as they conduct and publish research.
Barry’s biology faculty members are accomplished teachers and researchers and have published
in scientific journals in a variety of areas, including entomology, cardiac physiology, virology, yeast
genetics, fish behavior, seagrass beds, neurodevelopment, cancer research, reproductive genetics, endocrinology,
hearing, biostatistics and science teaching, among others.
Biology faculty members present their work annually at regional and national scientific conferences and frequently attend these conferences with student authors.

“I can truly say that attending Barry University was one of the best decisions I made in the pursuit of a career in medicine. The pre-medical program of study contained all the necessary elements I needed to succeed in medical school. In the Biology Department you will find excellent faculty and staff who will help to guide you in the right direction to reach your goals. By far my fondest memories are of my faculty research mentor, who supported me in my pursuit of medicine and always encouraged me to do my best. I would recommend Barry University to anyone who is interested in a career in healthcare.”
