BIOL 3910

Topics in Biology
Credit Hours:
1-4 hours. Repeatable for maximum 8 hours credit.

Topics will vary by semester and instructor. Faculty will cover or expand upon subjects not normally addressed in other classes. The subject will vary by instructor and semester.

The credit hours are based on the number of contact hours expected each week and correspond to the number of course periods the class meets. Thus a 1-credit course would meet on average for one period a week, a two credit for two, and so on. Grading is left to the discretion of the faculty member but is typically based on a combination of attendance, participation, and both written and presentation assignments.

Not offered on a regular basis.

Undergraduate Research in Biology

Undergraduates majoring in biology have the opportunity to enhance their learning through direct participation in research and scholarship. At UGA, these opportunities enable undergraduates to participate in ground-breaking research, often as part of a team of graduate students and faculty. In fact, many students can earn academic credit while working under an experienced faculty mentor by taking BIOL 4960R or working directly with the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CURO). The Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Fellowship (BSURF) has been established to support undergraduate research opportunities in the Division of Biological Sciences within the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. The Fellowship provides financial assistance to a student who has not had an opportunity to participate in a mentored research experience (paid, volunteer, or for credit) since matriculating to The University of Georgia.
