  • If you wonder whether you have the time to take the course and fulfill the requirements, please give careful consideration to the significant commitment involved. In addition to attending every class, you must be able to devote time outside of class studying curricula, collecting and observing in the field, and preparing specimens. On average, students spend about 30 hours per month on the class, or about seven hours per week. If you worry that you do not have this amount of time available, we respectfully ask you not to apply to the program. The reason is that every year several students drop out during the course because they don’t have enough time to do the work. We regret when this happens because we have more applicants than we can accept, and once the program is underway it is too late to offer that spot to another deserving applicant. Please check the FAQ Page of the website to see comments about the time commitment from former students.
