Department of Biology

Welcome to the Department of Biology

Welcome to the home page for the Biology Program at Saint Joseph’s University. Please follow the links on the left to learn more about us. The Department is located in the Science Center, in the main SJU campus, on the Philadelphia side of City Avenue.

The cornerstone of our educational philosophy is involving students in scientific research. The department has a long and productive history of student research and many students, both undergraduate and graduate, present their work at regional, national and international meetings each year. Many of our graduates enter schools of the health professions, graduate schools for M.S. or Ph.D. degrees, K-12 education, or industry jobs.
