The department of Biology is committed to giving students the opportunity to be involved in our research efforts.  Students are able to contact faculty members to sign up for a 4-credit hour course – BIOL4991, Research.  This course is usually an individual study course that allows a student to work on a research project.  During the summer (session one or two), there is often a section of this course offered for a group undergraduate research project.  Students with Work-Study can work in our labs by applying for our Undergraduate Lab Assistant position through the Student Employment Office.  Volunteering in a lab is also a great option to get research experience.
