Experience the possibilities and allow us to be a part of your Bios Journey.  We will assist you in the design of a curriculum, an adventure with “hands-on” training, that will foster critical thinking and problem-solving skills. 

Opportunities to participate in faculty-directed research, to attend and present at local, regional, national, and international research conferences, and publish in research journals are available. Students may pursue a B.S. in Biology or M.S. in Biology. In addition, undergraduate Biology Majors have the opportunity to complete a certificate program in Microbiology or Stream Restoration. Students may also minor in Biology to compliment their non-Biology degree.

Hands-on Learning

“The opportunities UWG provided me are amazing. The professors are hands-on in getting their students involved at an undergraduate level. That’s something you just don’t see at the larger universities.”
