Summer and Winter Biology Courses at UMCP

A variety of courses in Biological Sciences are offered through the University in both summer and winter terms. They include introductory as well as specialized upper-level classes and labs. Class size is usually smaller than classes during regular academic semesters and some classes are online. Course offerings and times vary each term.
