Galapagos Curriculum Student Articles

We offer special set of linked courses in the spring—an intensive version of Introductory Evolutionary Biology (sciences), a thematic freshman writing seminar (humanities), and a scientific illustration seminar (arts) — totaling 9 credits to a group of 12 first-year Biology Scholars. The curriculum includes an expenses-paid trip to the Galapagos archipelago over spring break, led by Dr. Irby Lovette.

These student articles showcase Biology Scholars’ experiences in the Galapagos archipelago.  Click on each student's name below to read the article.
