First-year students entering UGA beginning Fall 2016 are required to complete at least one experiential learning activity before graduation. As a BSPS student you will be required to take a minimum of two research courses (see PBS Undergraduate Research Central).
Students wishing to expand their experiential learning experiences may explore additional research courses, Study Abroad opportunities, service learning projects, leadership activities and many more (please go to http://www.experienceuga.com/student-faqs for more options).
