Teaching

The Georgia Museum of Natural History is uniquely qualified to provide interdisciplinary instruction in the university. 

Like many large university museums, the teaching mission of the Georgia Museum of Natural History is based upon the strength of the collections, especially their research and service programs. The collections associated with the Museum provide unique opportunities and mechanisms for the transmission of knowledge. They are a medium for understanding and appreciation of the complex natural world through direct exposure to natural history objects. 

The collections associated with the Georgia Museum of Natural History are used in over 50 undergraduate and graduate courses in at least a dozen University departments. These range from courses in scientific illustration to plant taxonomy. Thousands of students tour or use objects from the collections each year. The Museum offers a special hands-on opportunity through a natural history internship.
