Honors and Scholars
Through undergraduate research, you can expand on your classroom studies through in-depth, hands-on experiences that will allow you to discover how research advances our understanding of animals. In addition, you will learn about the processes of experimental design, implementation, and analysis. Your project could include everything from isolating a specific gene to developing improved methods of estrous synchronization to investigating the workings of the digestive systems.
