Biology Honors Program (BS)


Return to: Program Requirements

UM-Flint Department of Biology Website

Faculty Advisors: Dennis Viele, Judie Federico

The Honors Program in Biology seeks to provide exceptional students an opportunity for formal academic recognition in a program even more rigorous than the curriculum required of other biology students.

Students considering this Honors Program should consult with the Biology Department’s honors advisor as soon as possible after being admitted to the University Freshman/Sophomore Honors Scholar Program. This facilitates the planning of the student’s program. The importance of this early consultation should not be underestimated. There is very little room for error in planning a schedule of courses that permits breadth while requiring rigor.

Students should plan to fulfill some of their requirements with courses taken during spring or summer terms.

Applications to the Honors Program in Biology should be made early in the second semester of the sophomore year after completing the prerequisites. Procedures for application to this program can be obtained from the biology honors advisor.
