Overview

In the Biology Honors program of University of Wisconsin - Whitewater there are honors versions of each of the Cell-Physiology and Ecology-Field Biology emphases. In each, you pursue a more rigorous selection of courses and finish with a thesis based on a year-long research project. These are broadfield majors in which the major and minor are melded into a single program of study. The minor that has been rolled into these broadfield programs is essentially the Physical Sciences minor. We developed these emphases with two goals in mind:

  • To provide the best possible preparation for students interested in research or competitive professional programs.
  • To provide a challenging program that will highlight our best students so we can help them reach even their most ambitious goals.

Internships

Biological sciences students have opportunities for gaining practical experience in a variety of areas. They may participate in a field practicum through an intern program that earns up to 9 credits toward the degree. Paid internships are available with state, federal and private agencies in field or laboratory situations.
