Here at UNCG Biology, we are committed to providing excellent and comprehensive instruction for both undergraduate and graduate levels.
Visitors and prospective students are welcome to stop by the Biology Department Office (312 Eberhart Building) or call (336-334-5391) to arrange a tour of our teaching and research facilities at any time.
Biologists at UNCG readily share their expertise in biotechnology with the region’s biomedical and educational professionals. The Department invites inquiries from business and industry, health care facilities, and schools for assistance and training in this rapidly developing field. Faculty can adapt presentations to meet needs and solve problems in concept, technique, and equipment in both the laboratory and classroom. Formats include, but are not confined to, consultations, lectures, short courses, and workshops. All workshops include hands-on laboratory work for which a fee is charged.
UNCG administers an extensive financial aid program that includes scholarships, grants, loans, and work. Eligibility for programs based on need is determined by analysis of family financial information. The University’s Financial Aid Office administers all programs. For graduate students, the Department of Biology offers graduate assistantships on a competitive basis. Support is in the form of teaching or research assistantships. Additional information may be obtained from the Director of Graduate Studies in the Department, Dr. Paul Steimle. The deadline for applying for graduate assistantships is April 30.
