TU to hold ‘Explore Science Night’ Feb. 28

For current Thomas University students and future students considering science degrees, the TU Division of Science will hold “Explore Science Night” from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 28. The event will include information about degrees within the Division of Science as well as more information about possible career fields.

“We want to give students the opportunity to find out more about what science degrees TU offers and how those degrees can be used in various careers,” said Deana Baker, Chair of Division of Science. “TU offers a bachelor’s degree in biology with several minors, including Chemistry, Environmental Science, and Geographic Information Systems. We also have a bachelor’s degree in medical laboratory science, which is a rapidly growing field.”

“Explore Science Night” participants will learn how TU can prepare them for medical school, physical therapy programs, veterinary school, medical professions and other graduate programs.

Guest speakers include Dana Brooks from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Moultrie campus, who will be on hand to discuss graduate school opportunities in pharmacy and osteopathic medicine, and Jennings Childree, a 2015 TU graduate and biotechnology professional.

Participants will also learn about TU’s Geospatial Analysis Planning and Preservation (GAPP) Center at TU. Here students and faculty use cutting-edge geographic information system (GIS) and global positioning system (GPS) technology in classes, internships, research and work experience from grant and contract opportunities. GIS applications extend to many career opportunities and industry sectors, including conservation science, city planning, public health and insurance.

Another area of interest is TU’s Medical Laboratory Science program in which students are prepared for careers in laboratory science with a concentration on human health and medical laboratories. Medical lab scientists aid in the diagnosis of patients through scientific analysis of samples. Graduates are employed in medical and hospital labs, forensic labs, pharmaceutical labs, drug trial labs, veterinary labs and food labs.

“Explore Science Night” will be held in Classroom 132 of the Student Life Center on TU’s Magnolia Campus, 1550 Magnolia St., Thomasville. For more information or to RSVP, contact Leslie Cooper at 229-226-1621 Ext. 1020 or
