What our students have to say...
When I applied to UVM, I choose MMG as my major on a whim -- I remembered loving genetics in high school and it was different than any major I had seen at the other schools I applied to. It turned out to be the best decision I ever made. Within my first semester I was getting hands on experience in lab and the advising offered through MMG allowed me to create my own unique experience at UVM, something that seemed really different than the other majors here. Being part of a smaller department allowed me to really get to know both the other students in my major as well as the professors in the department on a personal level. I have enjoyed all of the classes offered as they were interesting, engaging and most importantly hands on. I truly feel prepared for a future career in either a microbiology or molecular genetics type field.
