Dear Students,

The application for the 21st Annual UW Undergraduate Research Symposium is now open! The Sym­po­sium will be held on May 18, 2018 in Mary Gates Hall.

The Symposium is a celebration of undergraduate accomplishments in research, scholarship, and creative expression in all academic disciplines. Students may present their research either in a poster session or an oral presentation session. We will also have a dedicated performance space in nearby Meany Hall for performing arts presentations and a visual arts and design showcase in Odegaard Undergraduate Library. Last year, over 1,200 students participated in this exciting event.

To learn more and start an appli­ca­tion, visit the Under­grad­u­ate Research Sym­po­sium sec­tion of the URP web­site. All UW under­grad­u­ates involved in research are encour­aged to apply. The appli­ca­tion dead­line is Feb­ru­ary 13, 2018.

Interested students are also encouraged to attend on of our upcoming Abstract Writing Workshops to assist you with your application.

Not yet involved in research? Vol­un­teer or stop by on the day of the event to learn more about the research that UW under­grads are par­tic­i­pat­ing in, from projects in syn­thetic chem­istry to new ideas in the realm of dance.

If you have any questions, contact urp@uw.edu.

P.S. You need not have results of your research by the February application deadline – In fact, most students will not have results until May. Come to an Abstract Writing Workshop to learn more about how you can write a compelling abstract for your in-process project!

Marine Biology Minor

 


Marine Biology Minor

To learn more about the marine ecosystem of the Salish Sea and beyond, consider the Minor in Marine Biology. This minor includes courses from the School of Aquatic & Fishery Sciences, The School of Oceanography, and the Department of Biology. Courses focus on topics such as: marine mammals, invertebrate zoology, marine resource conservation, and marine pollution.

the minor:

  • Is 35 credits
  • Can be paired with any major (science or otherwise)
  • Is one of the only minors that can be declared before a major – even in your freshman year

To immerse yourself in the field, study marine biology at Friday Harbor Labs: the UW’s marine field station in the San Juan Islands. Plan now to spend the entire spring quarter at the labs with courses such as “Marine Mammals of the Salish Sea”. Visit

To learn more, read the attached planning sheet for course details, visit marbiol.

2 English minors

Happy sunny, autumn day.

I’ve attached two flyers for two different minors that we offer in English. One is a fairly unrestricted English minor, a minor that allows students who are interested in literature and writing to choose pretty freely from most of our coursework (There are a few restrictions listed on the the flyer.).

The other minor is more specifically a writing minor, focusing on a series of writing and rhetoric courses taught in the English Department.

Please get in touch with English Advising if you have any questions at all about our minors, or send your students our way if they are interested. And thank you so much for letting your students know about these options.

Bring the Classroom into the Field with Wildlands Studies: Thailand, Tasmania, Ecuador, Chile!

Greetings from Wildlands ~

We’re excited for fall term to begin. And even more enthused that over 1000 students have joined our field study teams in the past five years. The consistent feedback is that field-based learning brings classroom studies to life. It’s an experiential layer that contributes to a deeper understanding of a student’s major and adds depth and meaning to what they’re learning in the classroom.

This coming year we will teach field courses in 10 locations over 13 countries. Our programs are perfectly suited for undergraduates who want a field study to complete their degree, and know this will improve their ability to get a job and into graduate school.

We invite students to apply for our Winter 2018 programs in Ecuador, Tasmania, Thailand and Chile, or our Spring 2018 programs in Costa Rica/Panama, South Africa and our newest program to Northern Europe (a comparison of landscapes, brown bears, lynx and wolves across Scotland, Norway and Sweden).

Applications are on our website: http://www.wildlandsstudies.com/index.php/enrollment-instructions

Field program information: http://www.wildlandsstudies.com/index.php/environmental-field-projects

Wildlands Studies creates academically rigorous, rich, immersive learning experiences that connect students with the natural world, and complement what they learn in the classroom.

Please share with your students and encourage them to consider a field based program with us.

Best regards, Leslie
