You also want to make a difference in the world – improve conditions across the globe and make positive changes in people’s lives. But how can you combine these two passions into a career?
So you’ve learned a little bit about DNA and find it fascinating.
As a Biotechnology major at FSC, you’ll design and implementation of your own research project.
Travel experiences have included travel to Costa Rica, Jamaica, Bermuda, Bahamas, Hawaii, New Zealand, Australia, and Italy.
Our accelerated program agreement with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine provides priority admission to qualified students.
There is always something interesting happening at Florida Southern.
In BIO 3750 Techniques in Tissue Culture, the theory and practice of animal tissue culture are covered. You’ll develop laboratory skills in culturing cells, as well as gain insight into microscopic observation and biochemical processes. Imagine seeing cardiac cells beating under a microscope, or observing neurons you grew in the lab light up with a florescent stain as they communicate with one another! These are moments you will never forget!
Through the Tiny Earth Network, we are able to provide students with an authentic research experience in their first semester at Florida Southern College.
Florida Southern College has a collaborative project with the Tiny Earth Network. This project focuses on one of the most pressing problems facing the global community: antibiotic resistance in bacteria.
Through the Tiny Earth Network, students will search for novel antibiotics produced by common soil microorganisms. This experience not only teaches students important laboratory techniques and skills, but also provides an outstanding opportunity to experience the scientific method firsthand, and to contribute to solving a pressing and ongoing health crisis. Students have expanded on these experiences later in their academic careers to develop more detailed research projects, and have presented their findings at national scientific meetings.
Our biotechnology majors attend a wide variety of graduate and professional schools.
The Biology department sponsors Beta Beta Beta, the society for biology students affiliated with the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Alpha Epsilon Delta (AED), the national Health Preprofessional Honor Society, and Rho Rho Rho Marine and Atmospheric Honor Society.
