BIOL 383: Graduate School & Work Seminar
The purpose of this seminar is to help seniors through the process of applying to graduate school, and/or determining options for working in biology after graduation. Applications for most graduate programs are due in January or February. By the end of this course, each student should have selected several programs to apply to, contacted the programs and potential advisors, have some understanding of financing for graduate school, and have the majority of their application completed. For students not planning to apply to graduate school, parallel assignments will prepare them to apply for a position as a lab or field technician or research fellow.
