Student experiences

"This program confirmed for me that I want to go into veterinary science. Lab activities ranged from handling snakes to watching bee dances to practicing with a blow dart. Dr. Radcliffe and Dr. Schultz were extremely approachable."
"The material covered in lectures was enriched by labs and field trips, which included practical experience with telemetry and darting equipment and visits to the Dyce Bee Lab and the Lab of Ornithology."
