The biopsychology minor is available to all students who have an interest in the biological basis of human and animal behavior.
Biopsychology Program Information:
From Beech bark to brook lamprey, the study of biology encompasses the natural world and all of its intricacies. Whether analyzing samples in a lab or studying aquatic habitat while rafting down a river, students gain an understanding of how a natural system functions, and learn to analyze humanity’s place in it. At GMC, the environment is an integral part of the learning experience. The Poultney River, which runs through campus, the 85-acre Lewis Deane Nature Preserve overlooking Lake St. Catherine, and the Lake Champlain and Hudson River watersheds all serve as living laboratories for coursework, as do the Taconic and Adirondack Mountain ranges to the College’s south and west. The GMC biology program is interdisciplinary, focused on environmental issues, and rooted in the region.
