Utica, NY (WIBX) - SUNYIT is now accepting applications for a brand new bachelor's program.

Beginning in the fall 2011 semester, the college will offer a biology program, which will give students three options--life science, bioinformatics and biotechnology.

SUNYIT Provost Esther Bankert says the program will prepare students for many career choices, including human medicine, veterinary medicine, conservation and teaching.

"The biology program at SUNYIT provides an in-depth introduction to the breadth of the discipline through core courses while maintaining the flexibility to explore one of three specialization tracks with a diverse selection of upper-level classes," Bankert said.
