Cell and Molecular Biology

Explore the science of life from minute strands of DNA to complex ecosystems that stretch for miles and miles.

Our program offers opportunities for research and study using the latest technology and equipment, in the lab or in the field.  In faraway tropical rainforests and coral reef habitats or New Hampshire’s own lakes and forests, PSU students work hands-on with faculty members to answer some of life’s toughest questions.

As an environmental biology major you’ll experience:

  • Degree programs in environmental biology or biology
  • Minors in neuroscience, anthropology, computing, criminal justice, and sustainability)
  • Courses in zoology, anatomy and physiology, conservation, ecology, biochemistry, microbiology, genetics, neurobiology just to name a few
  • Opportunities for local, national, and international field studies
