Why choose a generalized study of Biology at Saint Leo University?

The Saint Leo University Biology major with a General Biology Specialization is a program designed for students interested in a broad exposure to the science of Biology. Though not as narrowly tailored as our other two specializations, (Biomedical and Health Science, Ecology) the General Biology track affords students with the most flexibility in creating a curriculum.

You can expect individual attention from your professors at Saint Leo University. The professors are able to truly teach the science in a way that is not possible in the cavernous auditoria of larger schools. This puts our students in a very favorable position when competing with graduates of other colleges and universities.
