Institute for Biology Education
The Institute for Biology Education bridges the many biology programs at UW–Madison. The institute's twin goals are to improve the quality of undergraduate biology education and to link the campus biological sciences community to the public through outreach activities.
Undergraduate Study in Biology
Interim director: Janet Branchaw
UW–Madison offers a wealth of opportunities in the biological sciences. The campus biology community spans many departments and schools/colleges. More than thirty biological sciences majors are described in the catalog entries of seven schools/colleges. Students who are deciding between biological sciences majors should see the institute website. Those who need advising in a specific major should see the advisor for that major. The majors in biological aspects of conservation, biology, and molecular biology are administered within the institute. For biological aspects of conservation or molecular biology, see the College of Letters & Science section of this catalog. For the major in biology, see either the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences or the College of Letters & Science.
