STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

POWER YOUR BIOLOGICAL DREAMS WITH GEORGIA SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY

This college's wing, the Water's College of Health Professions, is the largest producer of undergraduate health professionals in Georgia. There are so many options for Major Programs one can choose from. Added to this the top-class faculty and other opportunities, I always thus wanted to pursue my bachelor's from here. So, my first step was to apply for the program online along with the documents and pay the required application fee of $30.


Course Curriculum - 

The structure of my program made things much interesting and better for me. The college offers a flexible biology degree that allowed me to receive broad training across sub-disciplines or to tailor a specific degree plan for my particular interests. From the stream of options available: molecular biology, zoology, botany, ecology, evolution, and conservation biology, my interest since the beginning was in molecular biology and this is only what I'm pursuing.
