Museum Seminar Series 2020-2021

Throughout the academic year, the AMNH will present the weekly Museum Seminar Series at which presentations on a variety of scientific topics will be given by leading scientists, educators and AMNH curators.


Comparative Biology Seminars

Silversmit edit 2

During their first year, RGGS Comparative Biology Ph.D. students are required to attend each program in the Series and will meet prior to each program for a discussion of the pertinent literature, which they will be expected to have read prior to the lecture, for a total of two hours each week. First year students earn one credit per semester for a total of two credits. After the first year, students’ participation is not required for credit, but is strongly encouraged.

Seminars will be held virtually on Mondays, 11am-noon (virtually for the Autumn, and possibly in person in the Spring) unless otherwise noted.
