Real Research Partnerships
Our research partnerships are the real deal: Students work alongside faculty as junior collaborators, not passive observers. TCNJ research teams make key scientific contributions, from lab work on cells and genes to fieldwork in local forests and Alaskan lakes. Our students are fully engaged researchers at the forefront of creating new knowledge.
Culture of Investigation
A spirit of discovery anchors our curriculum. Even courses and labs incorporate research, challenging students to sharpen critical thinking and analytical skills while mastering the use of up-to-date lab equipment. Students build breadth of knowledge through foundation courses and depth through upper-level study in their own area of interest.
Great Labs, Great Access
Everything you need, when you need it. Entrusted with their own keys, our undergraduate researchers get 24/7 access to tremendous research facilities, from cutting-edge molecular biology labs, to confocal and electron microscopes, to a climate-controlled greenhouse. A dedicated biology building boasts 75,000 square feet of teaching and research space.
