A degree in Biology opens up career possibilities in a wide range of industries: laboratory research, healthcare, environmental conservation, and more. At York College, our bachelor of science in Biology serves as an opportunity for you to explore your options with guidance from faculty experts—whether you come in knowing exactly which branch of biology interests you, or need some time to figure it out.
YCP Biology classes go beyond the textbook. Every class in the major includes hands-on research, with access to state-of-the-art lab facilities right here on campus. Our students tackle real-world issues and make real contributions to science. Many have presented their findings at regional and national conferences

- Cell and Molecular Biology
- Ecology and Conservation
- Pre-Professional Medicine
Biology majors who are interested in healthcare and related fields also have the opportunity to take courses through WellSpan York Hospital, located just around the corner from campus.
