The Program in Biology exposes undergraduates to research through practical training, courses, and opportunities for independent study with faculty pursuing cutting-edge science in a variety of fields.
Research and experiential learning are valuable and rewarding experiences for undergraduates no matter what the longer-term career plans may be. For students seeking the ScB degree, research is a requirement. For students in an AB program, research for credit is an option. For projects carried out over a longer period that take substantive shape, a senior honors thesis is a possible outcome.
