Microbiology (BIS)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs Sorted by Major/Minor

BIS students that wish to include Microbiology as one of their emphasis areas should recognize that they should have a clear goal for their BIS program and capstone project.  Students need to gain approval of courses for the emphasis from a Microbiology advisor.  Because Microbiology research often involves laboratory experiments, students should begin discussing their capstone project with a faculty member a year in advance.  They will then work with that faculty mentor, in coordination with the other emphasis mentors, to develop the experiments, methods, and schedule for the project.  The student is responsible for securing funding for the supplies needed for their project.
