Student Research Projects
At Pacific University, all faculty teach a variety of different courses. Typically, we do not use graduate teaching assistants, which means that your classes will be taught by professors abd that you will have plenty of opportunites to get to know the faculty in your discipline.
Below I have listed some of the courses that I teach. We are always developing and trying out new classes, so the list may change now and then. You can use the links to the left to read descriptions of the courses listed below.
BIOL 170 Human Genetics
BIOL 204 General Biology II
BIOL 304 Experimental Design, Analysis and Writing
BIOL 308 Microbiology
BIOL 400 Molecular Biology
BIOL 490 Capstone Experience
