The 生物学 curriculum builds a foundation in organismal biology, genetics and cellular biology, physiology, and ecology as well as chemistry, physics, and statistics. 学生 then have flexibility in choosing specific courses  that are tailored to fit specific 的职业目标. Laboratories, field studies, and internships train students with practical skills, writing and speaking ability, and critical thinking to be more competitive in the job market and to prepare them for professional school or post-graduate studies.

The College offers the Stephen Hatten Pre-Medical Externship for pre-medical students and a comparable Pre-Dental Externship for pre-dental students. 顾问也可以 帮助学生寻找其他实习机会.

Opportunities for research are available in almost every area of biology for both 荣誉和非荣誉本科生. 除了教师资助的研究外 Mississippi IDeA Network of Biomedical 研究 Excellence (INBRE) and USM's Drapeau Center for Undergraduate 研究 fund a number of research projects and summer activities.

The School has dozens of scholarships for students in biology, some specifically tailored 对于不同的重点(如.g.(医学预科,牙科预科,微生物学),家乡,或 学习年份.

伯利兹热带生态学考察- 2周,1月闭会期间

This program will consist of two weeks in the field during the January intersession in Belize,  where you will study tropical flora and fauna in several different ecosystems: 珊瑚礁,稀树大草原,雨林和红树林沼泽. 你将与 groups working on the conservation of plants and animals in Central America and with 从事自给农业的当地人. 学生将获得3小时的BSC 404LCA课程 或BSC 504LCA.

英国研究课程- 4周,夏季

学生 who participate in this Biogeography course will earn 6 hours of GHY 499ca 或GHY 599ca,同时真正了解伦敦这座城市. 他们会离开这里 study abroad experience, no longer a tourist, but as an experienced traveler who understands and appreciates the rich human history and environmental evolution that created this 非常复杂的城市. 最简单地说,伦敦只是一个河畔小镇, and the class material will begin at the end of the last ice age, when the River Thames broke through the Chiltern Hills and started flowing down its current path. We will then look at centuries of changing biogeography and human settlement patterns starting with the Romans and continuing through the development happening presently. Along the way, we will encounter wars, diseases, fires, as well as stories of natural and 人类的韧性使伦敦成为今天的全球城市. 学生将达到 this understanding through historic map analysis, and a series of walking tours and 野外远足. Then, for the last week of the course, we will travel to Edinburgh, 苏格兰. 学生 will compare and contrast the landscape of northern Great Britain to that of southern England, and see first-hand the vastly different human-environmental 塑造了爱丁堡和伦敦的历史.

暑期国际实习项目- 7周

Gain professional experience and earn six credits of BSC 492ca by interning in Dublin! 今年夏天与一群USM学生一起去爱尔兰旅行.  你会了解都柏林 和爱尔兰的工作文化.  然后,在接下来的六个星期里,你会 spend 32 hours per week working in a field corresponding to your field of interest. 


"Interning abroad is easily one of the best decisions I have ever made. 作为一个生物学家 sciences major, I was offered to intern at the Irish Heart Foundation, where I cultivated 与专门的医疗保健协调员建立终身关系.  我不仅做了 personal connections with the people I worked with, but I was able to experience a 我以前从未接触过的医疗保健的另一面.  我意识到有多少工作 really goes into patient care after hospital discharge, and I have a new appreciation 对于像他们这样的组织.  我相信有了更深的了解的各种 formats of patient care will help me to better treat my future patients, working as 医师助理.  如果再给我一次机会,我不会这样做 犹豫着说“是”!——麦迪逊·特拉罕
