Innovation in Science
The University of West Georgia’s Biology Program is one of the UWG’s largest and most popular programs on campus with more than 800 majors and 21 faculty housed in a recently renovated state-of-the-art facility.
Experience the possibilities and allow us to be a part of your Bios Journey. We will assist you in the design of a curriculum, an adventure with “hands-on” training, that will foster critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Opportunities to participate in faculty-directed research, to attend and present at local, regional, national, and international research conferences, and publish in research journals are available. Students may pursue a B.S. in Biology or M.S. in Biology. In addition, undergraduate Biology Majors have the opportunity to complete a certificate program in Microbiology or Stream Restoration. Students may also minor in Biology to compliment their non-Biology degree.
