Studying biology offers many unique opportunities.
Our department has two honor societies. We have summer programs for on-campus research and experiences abroad. Many biology students also choose to do off-campus internships that give them additional practical experience.
Research in Biology
In 2011, Dr. Martin Connaughton and summer research student Kathy Thornton ’13 focused on fluoxetine (Prozac) and its impact on the startle response in Zebrafish.
Washington College students Kristin Bircsak ’10 and Taylor Robinson ’10 spent the summer in Chestertown researching native reptile and amphibian populations with Assistant Professor of Biology Dr. Aaron Krochmal.
