January Term

Faculty members in the Biology department often teach courses during January Term. The following kinds of courses are often provided:

  • Seminars designed to probe special areas of interest in the biological sciences through readings, reports, and discussions;
  • Field courses, either on or off campus, that provide experience in the study of natural ecosystems, including international options;
  • Directed research on topics in experimental or field biology; and
  • Independent study courses, either on campus or by special arrangement at universities or research institutions.
    Courses taken during January Term do not fulfill Biology majors credit.
