Students are encouraged to pursue research as part of their undergraduate education. Students who excel in both course work and research will be recognized as Biology Research Scholars. To qualify, students must fulfill all of the following requirements:
- achieve a minimum grade point average of 3.5 in all courses taken from UCD faculty, as well as in all UCD biology courses;
- participate in a research project, consisting of a minimum of six credit hours of independent study, taken over at least two semesters;
- write a scientific paper describing the research; and
- present a seminar on their research.
Students who wish to become involved in research should contact Dr. Leo Bruederle no later than their junior year, and preferably sooner.
