OPPORTUNITY. A particular advantage of the UW-Green Bay program is the opportunity for undergraduate students to gain practical experience. Many students work with faculty on independent research projects. There is an active internship program with private, state, and national agencies, and with industry. Such experiences are beneficial when entering the job market or seeking admission to graduate and professional schools.

EXCELLENT TOOLS. The program has well-equipped laboratories for teaching and student/faculty research. Other teaching and research facilities include the 290-acre Cofrin Arboretum on the campus, off-campus natural areas managed by the University, the Richter Natural History Museum, University Herbarium, small animal laboratories, cellular and molecular biology research labs, human physiology and fitness research facilities, and greenhouse. Students also have ready access to microcomputers and the University’s high speed computer network.
