Our undergraduate program is designed to provide flexibility and personal attention. Each student plans an individualized program of study in consultation with a faculty advisor. Students have many opportunities to interact closely with faculty through field, lab and research experiences. Areas of student research interest include ecology, evolution, cell and molecular biology, growth and development, and physiology (see our departmental web page for a list of completed student projects). Popular study opportunities include our biennial trip to Costa Rica and student-initiated research projects at our internationally known Proctor Maple Research Center or at the Pringle Herbarium, the third largest plant collection in New England.
