Haverford College
Department of Biology

Welcome to Biology at Haverford

Haverford's Department of Biology is uniquely focused on molecular and cellular biology and committed to a research-based curriculum stressing the experimental method as a teaching tool.

Students in all levels of the curriculum frame their own experimental questions and use current research techniques to search for answers. Senior students participate in laboratory-based, year-long research projects. This research results in presentations at local and national meetings, and publications in peer-reviewed journals.
