The Bradley Advantage

The five-year biology program sharpens your research abilities as you gain deeper knowledge of the science. You’re exposed to lab research as a first-year student, then you can work with faculty on research teams as a sophomore. You’re nominated for the program during your junior year. Graduate-level courses, an oral exam and thesis research fill your last two years in the program.

Successful Outcomes

Bradley’s five-year biology program successfully prepares you for doctoral studies or the workforce. In recent years, almost all graduates found jobs or continued their education within six months of graduation. They’re working at places such as DuPont Pioneer, Eli Lilly and Co., Endotronix and the University of Colorado Cancer Center. Others are attending graduate schools at institutions such as Georgetown University, Northwestern University and Palmer College of Chiropractic.
