See all topics

Students interested in living things and how they relate can gain an understanding of the natural world. A biology mentorship may integrate mathematics, chemistry, and physics, as well as applied fields, such as anthropology or political science.

Students projects evaluate and compare practices, or propose policy or research in applied or basic biology, including: agriculture, animal husbandry, economic biology, ecosystem or wildlife management, genetics, or molecular biology. Those participating in a biology mentorship learn how to conduct research, problem-solve, assimilate new information, organize, think critically and communicate effectively.
