A bachelor’s degree in Biology from Le Moyne College provides the opportunity to pursue any number of career paths built on the understanding of life and its interactions with the environment. Our program continues to successfully prepare students for careers in the health professions, field and laboratory research, as well as the pharmaceutical and biotechnology fields. Our curriculum offers a comprehensive list of both traditional as well as one-of-a-kind courses, all of which promote critical thinking and scientific inquiry.
Students within the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences have the opportunity to travel abroad by enrolling in departmental travel courses, conduct original research with a faculty mentor, and present their work at regional and national conferences. At Le Moyne, both students and faculty benefit from the close interaction afforded by the relatively small class sizes.

The mission of the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences is to provide majors with a broad scientific background to make them competitive for advanced degree programs and professions in a variety of biological or environmental fields. In providing course offerings that span the level of organization from the cell to the ecosystem, we strive to give our graduates the tools to meet the challenges of today’s human health and environmental issues. Throughout the educational process, the department emphasizes the importance of clear, effective, and factual communication, and the students’ roles in the future enhancement of scientific knowledge.
Students who major in something other than the natural sciences will learn the scientific process, and the excitement that can come from answering a previously unanswered question. Specifically, we seek to use biology and environmental science as examples of how science can provide answers to a variety of questions with implications for present and future environmental, medical, physical, and social issues.
We believe that all students who graduate with a degree in biological sciences, regardless of their specialization, should be able to demonstrate the following competencies:
Goal 1. An ability to use the scientific method and exhibit scientific communication skills.
The Biology Club is an organization whose purposes are to promote student interest and participation in the life sciences and to provide a social venue through which students may explore shared interests and make new acquaintances. The Biology Club sponsors a variety of events and activities throughout the year and helps freshman biology students adjust to college life.
The Beta Beta Beta Biological Honor Society is a society for students, particularly undergraduates. It seeks to encourage scholarly attainment in this field of learning by reserving its active membership for those who achieve superior academic records and who indicate special aptitude for and major interest in the life sciences. It desires to cultivate intellectual interest in the natural sciences and to promote a better appreciation of the value of biological study. It thus welcomes into associate membership other students who are interested in biology.
Beta Beta Beta also endeavors to extend the boundaries of human knowledge of nature by encouraging new discoveries through scientific investigation and to this end encourages undergraduate students to begin research work and report their findings in the society’s journal, BIOS. It emphasizes, therefore, a three-fold program: stimulation of scholarship, dissemination of scientific knowledge and promotion of biological research.
