Undergraduate Honors Programs

Biological Sciences

The Department of Biological Sciences (DBS) Honors Program is for students majoring in Biology, Genetics, Microbiology, and Zoology.  It requires students to design a challenging program of advanced study, including 8 credits of honors coursework in biology and at least two semesters of research or teaching scholarship. Participants are required to present their scholarly work at a local, regional, or national meeting. A written honors thesis is also required. Invitations to join the DBS Honors Program are sent in the first 3 weeks of the Fall and Spring semesters, based on GPA and number of credit hours completed at NC State.
