Departmental Honors

A student may apply for admission to the departmental honors program through a potential thesis advisor. Requirements for Departmental Honors include a major GPA of 3.25 and at least 2 semesters of research at the 300 level for a minimum of 6 credits. The student must write a research proposal for their project and a thesis at the conclusion of their research. This work must be presented in a symposium at the end of the project. Students must meet regularly with their advisor and research group to discuss their research progress in BioS 387 and BioS 388 to facilitate progress in the research project.

It can cost over $1,000 for a graduate student to present their research at a professional meeting.
Can you provide support for a graduate student to travel to a professional meeting?
