MMG Course Schedule

  • What our students have to say...

    I joined the microbiology program as a first year student because I loved immunology and wanted to avoid ecology courses. It was the best decision I ever made. The courses in MMG progress naturally; you start out memorizing the basic material and later use that knowledge and the scientific literature to formulate answers to questions currently being asked in research labs around the world. No matter what jobs I take on over the course of my life, having confidence in my ability to think critically and answer complicated scientific questions will be key. The MMG program also allows so many opportunities to develop teaching skills and technical bench skills. Through the laboratory-heavy coursework, we become very comfortable with both basic microbiology techniques and more advanced techniques that other students won't learn until graduate school or the workforce. The advising in the MMG program is absolutely top-notch as well, and the students in the program are a tight-knit group. I have had an absolutely fantastic four years with this program and can't sing its praises highly enough!
