Rhode Island College biology faculty are a community of scientific researchers with wide-ranging expertise. They provide both an academically rigorous and student-centered learning environment. RIC's small class sizes (lab sections have a 24-student maximum) create many opportunities for student-faculty and student-student interactions. Students gain a wide range of laboratory skills, written and oral communication skills and have the opportunity to engage in focused research experiences under the guidance of faculty mentors.
