Advising and Career Counseling

Undergraduate majors are encouraged to consult a faculty member as soon as possible to discuss degree options and course choices. Opportunities for independent study, research, field experience, student hourly employment, undergraduate teaching assistantships, and participation in student organizations are available. Students may consult faculty members in their areas of interest.

Undergraduate Biology Program staff can direct students to faculty members. Brochures and information about curricula, careers, and opportunities in the biological and health-related sciences are available in the UBP office, 2045 Haworth, or the Biology Teaching Resource Center, 1004 Haworth.
