The two business application essays, written by the same applicant, are in response to questions posed by an MBA program, which is especially interested in how candidates take risks and overcome challenges. The writer handles the first question, which allows for one page to describe a personal risk and its impact, by vividly recounting a life-changing 3500-mile bike trip he took across the US with his brother at the age of 21. The second essay gives applicants two pages to describe a challenging team experience and their contributions to its success. Here, the writer has the advantage of having already worked in business for a few years after completing his bachelor’s degree, so he wisely turns to his most successful team experience at his company, where he was a project leader.
To be considered for admission to the Cockrell School of Engineering, the Jackson School of Geosciences, the Economics major in the College of Liberal Arts, and the Environmental Science major in the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Natural Sciences, applicants who are otherwise eligible for automatic admission to the University must meet the calculus-readiness requirement. To be considered for admission to other math-intensive majors (mathematics, business, physics, or computer science), an applicant who is otherwise eligible for automatic admission to the University but does not meet the calculus-readiness requirement is offered admission to another major at the University.
Henry N. Young, an associate professor in the College of Pharmacy, strives to create learning experiences that help students discover and construct knowledge for themselves.
The in the Terry College of Business offers two undergraduate versions of the Certificate in Personal and Organizational Leadership to develop a new class of business and community leaders who value on-going self-development, compelling communication, organizational goals, adaptability to change, ability to create high performing teams, and a strong business acumen.
The Leadership Fellows program is for students of any major. Students obtaining this version of the certificate focus on leadership development courses and activities that enhance understanding and application of leadership principles and reinforces commitment to civic issues, service, and volunteerism.
Dr. Pazdro was recently awarded the Faculty Mentoring Undergraduate Research Award in the UGA College of Family & Consumer Sciences. His research program addresses the genetic regulation of cellular antioxidant defense systems to identify critical genes and alleles that regulate oxidative stress-related phenotypes in disease. These studies are part of a long-term effort to better understand the genetic basis for a wide variety of chronic diseases and guide future design of more effective clinical interventions.
The Biological Science major in the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at the University of Georgia provides a flexible program of study integrating both biological and agricultural sciences. Students take courses in general biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, math, physics, and several electives to prepare for professional programs in veterinary medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, and medicine, or for advanced graduate degrees (Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy) in any of the biological sciences.
''The first time I came to UGA was during my high school sophomore year for the Georgia Junior Science and Humanities Symposium. I fell in love with the beautiful campus and all the activities that were available to students. When I looked into the biological engineering program, I realized that it was a perfect match. One of my biggest achievements has been working in professor William Kisaalita’s cellular bioengineering laboratory. I have gained valuable skills that have prepared me for my career goals in medical school as well as made me a more complex and critical thinker.''
''I chose to attend UGA because of its strong science curriculum. I wanted to be challenged in a way that would help prepare me for a career in medicine. I’ve been blessed with many great professors. Apart from UGA’s respected academia, I was drawn to UGA’s rich tradition that is embedded in the South, Georgia Bulldog football, and the Classic City. Athens is arguably the best college town in the South.''
Employment demand for engineers remains among the most favorable of all professions. Biological engineers will be essential to the solution of many process-development needs in several industries including industrial fermentation, cell culture processing, filtration, environmental consultation and regulation, and others.
An understanding of basic biological principles is crucial in interpreting the implications of environmental degradation, impact of genetic engineering and biotechnology, disease and forensic medicine, legal and ethical issues, and communication of that to middle and high school grades. Students take courses in science curriculum a& learning, teaching methods, technological capability, philosophy & leadership, and others from one of four science content specializations: 1) Biology; 2) Chemistry; 3) Physics; or 4) Earth Science. An internship provides practical learning and teaching experience.
The four-year program provides a balance of basic sciences, humanities, social sciences, engineering sciences, biological sciences, and courses in engineering design and analysis. Students choose from three engineering areas of emphasis – Biomedical, Biochemical or Environmental – and tailor courses to match. Course topics include mass transport and rate phenomena, biomaterials, reaction systems, biomechanics, environmental engineering, solid/hazardous waste management, and others. Prior to graduation, students must complete the Fundamentals of Engineering examination which qualifies the student for Engineer-in-Training registration (a prerequisite for Professional Engineer registration). A dual degree program is also available, which allows a student to earn a Bachelors of Science in Biological Engineering and Bachelor of Science in Environmental Health in five years.
It is a collaborative effort of the University of Georgia's Department of Germanic & Slavic Languages, the Terry College of Business, and the School of Economics and Social Sciences at the Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg located about two hours north of Munich in the state of Bavaria, Germany.
