UGA is currently ranked among the top 20 public universities in U.S. News & World Report. The University's main campus is located in Athens, approximately 65 miles northeast of Atlanta, with extended campuses in Atlanta, Griffin, Gwinnett, and Tifton. UGA was founded in 1785 by the Georgia General Assembly as the first state-chartered University in the country. UGA employs approximately 1,800 full-time instructional faculty and more than 7,600 full-time staff. The University's enrollment exceeds 36,000 students including over 27,500 undergraduates and over 8,500 graduate and professional students. Academic programs reside in 17 schools and colleges, as well as a medical partnership with Augusta University housed on the UGA Health Sciences Campus in Athens. About the College/Unit/Department The Franklin College of Arts and Sciences is the oldest, largest and most academically diverse college at the University of Georgia. In many ways, it is at the heart of UGA, the nation's first state-chartered institution of higher education. Three of the five most popular undergraduate majors are among the nearly 40 departments and institutes that make up Franklin College. Offering 78 undergraduate majors, 35 master's degree programs and 31 doctoral degree programs, Franklin College produces nearly 50% of the institution's total student credit hours. The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology's greatest strength, and identity itself, resides in its people - the approximately 500 undergraduate majors, 70 graduate students training for their Ph.D. degrees, 20 post-doctoral fellows, 40 research and administrative staff, and 40 primary faculty members. Faculty teach and conduct research in classrooms all over campus and in research labs in Davison Life Sciences, Coverdell, and the Complex Carbohydrate Research Center and Center for Molecular Medicine buildings. It is here that the department realizes its aspirations in research, education and service, subscribing to the cross-fertilization of ideas that flow from the synergy of its missions. The department's flipped classroom and problem- and case-based teaching strategies and education research programs are advancing the frontiers of student learning. Making new discoveries and enlightening students, whether in the classroom or in the research lab via undergraduate or dissertation projects, provides excitement more than anything else.
