Innovation in Science
Biology is one of the UWG’s largest and most popular programs, with more than 800 majors and 21 faculty housed in a recently renovated, state-of-the-art facility.
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.
Forensic Science and Investigation Pathway
The Forensic Science & Investigation Pathway offers an interdisciplinary program of study for students interested in applying science, social context, and rules of criminal procedure to the seizure and analysis of physical evidence.
Natural Resources Management Pathway
The Natural Resources Management Pathway provides a foundation for evaluating the ecological, physical, and social dimensions of the natural environment.
