All undergraduate students that are currently majoring in Biology and have earned 60+ credit hours are required to meet with an advisor in the Biology program each semester in order to register for classes.
Undergraduate Research in Biology
Undergraduates majoring in biology have the opportunity to enhance their learning through direct participation in research and scholarship. At UGA, these opportunities enable undergraduates to participate in ground-breaking research, often as part of a team of graduate students and faculty. In fact, many students can earn academic credit while working under an experienced faculty mentor by taking BIOL 4960
or working directly with the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CURO)
. The Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Fellowship (BSURF
) has been established to support undergraduate research opportunities in the Division of Biological Sciences within the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences. The Fellowship provides financial assistance to a student who has not had an opportunity to participate in a mentored research experience (paid, volunteer, or for credit) since matriculating to The University of Georgia.
