Biological Illustration

The Program

The Biological Illustration program is a rigorous and well-defined program of course work. A prospective Biological Illustration major must arrange for two advisors who agree to supervise the program. One supervisor must be a professional illustrator and the other must be a faculty member in an appropriate science department, such as Botany, Entomology, or Zoology.

Each prospective graduate must present to the program office in 2014 Turlington a portfolio of illustrations that has been approved by the advisors as representative of the student's accomplishments during the course of study.

After graduation, an illustrator may find employment with museums, or with botany, zoology, entomology, anthropology, or medical departments within universities, botanical gardens, or research organizations, both public and private.

Admission to the Program

Enrollment is restricted to only a few highly qualified students, because of the tutorial nature of much of the instruction. Students should prepare for this major as early as possible in their academic careers. The usual College of Liberal Arts and Sciences requirements and the following are essential:
