Student Stories

Lisz' Smiling"The classes are intense but offer so much information that will be used directly in my future career with laboratories that are small and personal. I would recommend this department to anyone interested in research or anyone who wants that personal attention while still at a large university."

-Lisz (Molecular Genetics '14)

"I am a non-traditional student and the MMG program was very helpful in designing a curriculum that suited my educational needs. The advising I received was out of this world and the MMG faculty is comprised of a community of very talented and motivated individuals."

-Rachael (Microbiology '13)

MMG Student Tom studying by Lake Champlain"I’ve had a wonderful time during my stay here with the MMG department. My experience in UVM MMG started as a high school student looking for a college program. I sent an e-mail inquiring about the department and received a quick response thanking me for my interest and describing the program of study. That’s when I knew I would be attending UVM the next year. The person who answered my email? My future adviser!"

-Tom (Major: Molecular Genetics, Minor: Microbiology '13)
