Customize your academics

DelVal is one of the few small, private colleges in America with diverse programs in animal science, animal biotechnology and conservation, agriculture, horticulture, ornamental horticulture, and agronomy. This allows biology majors to customize their academic programs. For example, students in our environmental specialization can take courses in the animal conservation and wildlife management program. Pre-veterinary students are able to take courses in both small and large animal sciences. Our faculty members are versed in anatomy, physiology, ecology, ornithology, cell and tissue biology, botany, molecular biology, microbiology, genetics, genomics, computational biology, freshwater ecosystems, entomology, systematics and an ever-growing list of new endeavors.
