So much to do, so little time
When you sign up for biology at UW-Eau Claire, not only will you get a great degree, but you will discover a ton of different ways to learn. Here are just a few examples.
- Participate in research that is usually reserved for grad students
- Get that research published and present it at a conference
- Travel to a faraway place to study ecology in the rain forest
- Complete an internship while you swim alongside sharks
That's just a start. There's way more to do than we can possibly list. Go check out all of the opportunities you can have as a biology student.
Get hands-on with research
You have many opportunities to participate in research at UW-Eau Claire, especially in the Department of Biology. One reason is that we are the Center of Excellence for Faculty and Undergraduate Student Research Collaboration in the UW System. The other big reason is that our faculty truly enjoy working with Blugolds on research they have initiated or that you want to begin. Getting you involved in research at some point during your time here is a priority for us. The video below is an example of how research is woven into our curriculum.
