The College

As members of Barrett, students have access to cutting-edge labs and meaningful research as early as their Freshman year.

Our educational goals in SoLS are to catalyze the development of knowledge, technical, and critical thinking skills in the life sciences that will help our undergraduates function as effective citizens, scientists, and scholars in the 21st century. Students and researchers at all levels participate in a variety of educational and research activities enabling students to achieve skills in the forms of analytical and scientific thinking requisite to addressing societal problems associated with health, disease, and the environment. Most of our undergraduate microbiology courses can be taken for honors credit. Activities for your honors contract include, but are not limited to, writing papers, preparing class material and giving presentations, attending discussion groups, developing lab exercises, or creating active learning instructional materials.
