Honors Research in Biology: BIOL-40100 / 40200
Students in Biology have the opportunity to conduct honors research.
Students with a minimum GPA in all biology courses of 3.50 and an overall GPA of 3.30 may apply for honors after they have completed BIOL-30200 Research in Biology, but no later than the first two weeks of the senior year. Application must be made to the department curriculum committee for admission to honors.
When a student is accepted for honors, an honors committee is formed, consisting of the project director and two other members of the biology department faculty.
The student must write a paper and give an oral presentation by the end of the second semester of the project
- Note: students may do Honors research in Biology without being in the H&S Honors program. Talk with your academic adviser if you are interested in conducting research.
