DGED 501 GTA DEVELOPMENT
F,S 1 cr. SEM 1.
PREREQUISITE: Current Graduate Teaching Assistant Program.
-- The purpose of this course is to provide MSU's graduate teaching assistants (GTA) with an opportunity for on-going, interdepartmental training throughout the semester as they teach their assigned course(s). The class will meet three times a semester in a seminar style fashion. Most of the requirements will be met through independent reflective writings by the GTA.

DGED 591 SPECIAL TOPICS
On Demand 1 - 4 cr. Max 12 cr
PREREQUISITE: Upper division courses and others as determined for each offering.
-- Courses not required in any curriculum for which there is a particular one time need, or given on a trial basis to determine acceptability and demand before requesting a regular course number.

DGED 610 GEOBIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS TEXTS AND CRITICS: KNOWLEDGE
F 3 cr. LEC 2 RCT 1
PREREQUISITE: Acceptance into a Ph.D. program.
-- This course represents the first of a two-course sequence for Ph.D. students participating in the Geobiological Systems Science IGERT program. The course will provide an introduction to systems biology and explore the components necessary for understanding, formulating and developing models that represent key processes in complex microbial communities.

DGED 611 IGERT: GEOBIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS SCIENCE II
S 3 cr. LEC 1 RCT 2
PREREQUISITE: Acceptance into a Ph.D. program, DGED 610.
-- This course represents the second of a two-course sequence for Ph.D. students participating in the Geobiological Systems Science IGERT program. The goal of the course is to develop a working understanding of system biology models and how these approaches can be applied to complex microbial communities.

DGED 613 IGERT: SCIENTIFIC PROPOSAL WRITING
F 3 cr. LEC 3
PREREQUISITE: Acceptance in IGERT Program; DGED 610 and DGED 611.
-- The goal of this course is to provide the doctoral student with strategies, practical skills and experience in seeking funding sources and writing and evaluating scientific proposals. The student should leave this course with a proposal that is ready to submit for funding.

DGED 614 IGERT: ADVANCED METHODS IN GEOBIOLOGY
F,S,Su 3 cr. LEC 1 IND 1 LAB1
PREREQUISITE: Acceptance in IGERT Program.
-- This course is part of the required curriculum for IGERT students. The purpose is to provide students with the opportunity to learn advanced research methods that will allow them to understand complex geomicrobiological communities.

DGED 621 IGERT: GEOBIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS SCIENCE: LABORATORY ROTATIONS
F,S.Su 1 cr. LAB 1
PREREQUISITE: Acceptance in IGERT Program.
-- This course is part of the required curriculum for IGERT students. The purpose is to provide students with the opportunity to experience different laboratory environments and different experimental approaches, which will assist them in choosing a laboratory for thesis work.

DGED 676 IGERT: GEOBIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS SCIENCE: INTERNSHIP
F,S.Su 3 cr. IND 3
PREREQUISITE: Acceptance in IGERT Program, DGED 610 AND DGED 611.
-- This course is part of the required curriculum for IGERT students, and provides an opportunity for IGERT students to participate in a domestic or international internship at an academic, private and or national laboratory.
