Astrobiology Student Focus Group Report

Two focus groups were held with Astrobiology graduate students in order to gain feedback on components of the AB program, including coursework, research rotations, international collaborations, interdisciplinarity, teamwork, interactions with faculty; and student recommendations for the AB program. In general, students offered positive feedback about the structure of the Astrobiology Program. They especially like the workshops, the seminar series and speaker lunches, and the core courses. They would like more interaction with other students and among the faculty, and they would like more guidance on setting up their rotations.
