Undergraduate Students

Emphasis on Teamwork

Welcome to our Undergraduate Degree Program.

Your time here will be focused on exploring themes of discovery, from cells to ecosystems, as well as the application of biology to broader fields, like medicine, agriculture, and conservation. We support many degree programs and emphasis areas that prepare students for a variety of careers, such as medicine, conservation, ecology, dentistry, pharmacy, rehabilitation sciences, nursing, toxicology, microbiology, molecular biology, and computational biology.

Our curriculum emphasizes the importance and use of communication, modern information technology, and mathematics. These skills and tools are cultivated through all four years at Clemson and are evaluated in a senior-year seminar course.

We urge our students to participate in biological research both inside and outside of the University, as the process creates both career and personal benefits. For example, every student is encouraged to undertake research projects with faculty. We also offers a series of creative inquiry (team research) projects each semester.

Additionally, we encourage students to experience research outside of the University, through means such as study abroad programs, internships, or participation in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program sponsored by the National Science Foundation.

Through our excellent team of advisors, our weekly seminar series, and our many online resources, we help students achieve these research experiences. Please continue to explore the many opportunities our large department offers, from our degrees to our student clubs, and beyond.
