BIOL 6515. Advanced Selected Topics in Cellular and Molecular Biology (0-0-3) Topics will vary by semester and expertise of the instructor. Topics may include but are not limited to Advanced Molecular Techniques, Advanced Neurobiology, Advanced Developmental Biology or Advanced Histology. This course, under different topic titles, may be repeated to allow specialization in the area of cellular and molecular biology. Laboratory experiences, when included, will provide experiential, hands-on learning in the specific topic being covered. Laboratory and lecture hours may vary. Laboratory work may extend beyond the scheduled class hours. Course may be taught in a project-based format. (Course fee required.)


BIOL 6516. Advanced Selected Topics in Organismic Biology (0-0-3) Topics will vary by semester and expertise of the instructor. Topics may include but are not limited to advanced study of Plant Taxonomy, Parasitology, Entomology, Ornithology, Mammalogy, Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy, Vertebrate Diversity, Comparative Vertebrate Physiology, Microbial Diversity, or Invertebrate Biology. This course may be repeated for credit when the topic differs to allow specialization in the area of organismic biology. Laboratory experiences, when included, will provide experiential, hands-on learning in the specific topic being covered. Laboratory and lecture hours may vary. Laboratory work may extend beyond the scheduled class hours and require Saturday or weekend field trips. Course may be taught in a project-based format. (Course fee required.)


BIOL 6517. Advanced Selected Topics in Ecological and Evolutionary Biology (0-0-3) Topics will vary by semester and expertise of the instructor. Topics will focus on the distribution, abundance and adaptations of living organisms. Topics may include but are not limited to advanced coverage in the areas of Aquatic Biology, Environmental Toxicology, Conservation Genetics, Community Ecology, Aquatic Entomology, Coastal Environments and/or Natural Environments of Georgia or the Southeast or any of the international program sites selected for study. This course, under different topic titles, may be repeated to allow specialization in the area of ecological or evolutionary biology. Laboratory and field experiences, when included, will provide experiential, hands-on learning in the specific topic being covered. Laboratory and lecture hours may vary. Laboratory work may extend beyond the scheduled class hours and require Saturday and/or weekend field trips. Course may be taught in a project-based format. (Course fee required.)


BIOL 6555. Selected Topics in Biology (0-0-1) An opportunity to study a biological topic or carry out a short term research project in an area of interest. Courses will be semester length or short courses in specialty areas of biology, available as needed or as required by current topics in biology. These are topics not usually available on a regular basis and may be repeated under a different topic. This course may be repeated an unlimited number of times.
