New Professional Development Course for Biology Majors

Our experiential learning coordinator, Norah Warchola (, has created a new course to help Biology students work on their professional development.  Offered for the first time in Fall 2021, BIOL 395X "Professional Development in Biological Sciences - Exploring Experiential Learning" counts as an advanced biology course within the major and helps students navigate questions like:

  • Why do research or shadowing?
  • What if I don't have research experience?
  • How do I contact potential mentors?
  • How do I find internships?
  • Where do I start with all these application materials?
  • What experiences are right for me?

This 2 credit course will meet on Fridays, from 3:20 to 5:00 pm and can be added in the AccessPlus registration system.
