Student Success

"I learned a wide variety of skills from the UWG Biology Program that I might not have at other schools ... Being able to be a teaching assistant especially helped me practice my communication skills, and my time in the microbiology research lab allowed me to prepare for my current job in a medical lab."

– Emma Young, B.S. '21, M.S. '23
