Students should take every effort to immerse themselves in the full educational experience offered by UW-Platteville in general, and the biology department in particular. We encourage involvement in student organizations, undergraduate research opportunities, biology faculty-led study tours, summer opportunities, and more. Some of our pre-medicine students may be eligible to participate in the competitive Rural and Urban Scholars in Community Health program. In short, we offer a variety of fantastic educational opportunities for our students.
Members of the biology department at UW-Platteville are dedicated to teaching undergraduate students and we encourage our students to meet with us outside of the classroom environment for advising assistance, class-related questions, and more. The close-knit culture of our department members is one of the hallmarks of our program. In addition to department support, our campus offers a variety of resources to help our students make the most of their educational opportunities.
