    Testimonials

    I would highly recommend the Biotechnology program at St. Lawrence College for those interested in a career in science. This program provides you with an in-depth education in a wide variety of subjects - from genetic engineering to plant biology. All of the teachers have experience in their respective fields, and they genuinely care about you understanding the class material. It wasn’t uncommon to see a teacher work 1-on-1 with a student when they didn’t understand something.

    Shortly after graduating, I got a job at Queen’s University as a laboratory manager. My employer has been consistently impressed with the education I received at St. Lawrence College. I can’t recommend this program enough!
