Summer Courses

Since 1994 GGC has offered a one-week course for biology instructors each summer on our Greenwood campus. The courses offer didactic instruction led by GGC faculty, hands-on laboratory and other activities as well as time for teachers to share ideas that work in their classroom.

The summer course for 2017 will be an online hybrid course with didiactic online lectures followed by a two-day workshop at the Greenwood Genetic Center or on the Gene Machine - Mobile Science Laboratory.

The course provides three graduate credit hours that can be used for recertification or to transfer into a graduate program of study. We currently offer four separate courses on a rotating schedule. Summer Course registration begins in early spring.

The 2018 Summer Course will be an online hybrid course - Biology 614: Contemporary Topics in Human Genetics. Registration is now open.
