The MIMG degree program offers 2 options by which undergraduates can obtain a Bachelor of Science degree. These options are known as Path 1 and Path 2. The requirements for each path depend on the individual student’s desire to pursue either a guided, team-oriented inquiry-based laboratory experience (Path 1) or an advanced, independent research experience in consultation with a faculty mentor (Path 2).
All students entering the Pre-MIMG major will be Path 1. To be admitted to Path 2, the student must be researching in a MIMG, MCDB, or Biological Chemistry lab; have a GPA of at least 3.0; and, submit an application for consideration. Students must apply for Path 2 no later than Winter quarter of third year, however exceptions may be made for transfers. Consult with the Student Affairs Officer for more information on the application process.
