We provide comprehensive instruction in Mendelian, molecular, computational, evolutionary, and statistical genetics, as well as genetic counseling. Our students work on important research problems with renowned scientists in state-of-the-art laboratories. Although these opportunities are only possible in a major research university, our students enjoy small class sizes and the personal attention that one would expect at at a smaller college. Every student completes a minimum of two semesters of laboratory research or independent study under the direction of a faculty member. Many of our students are authors on papers published in leading scientific journals. Our graduating majors are prepared to enter graduate or professional schools or the workforce.
