Every Winter Term, the Reproductive Science Program offers a course in Mammalian Reproductive Endocrinology (MRE 541) which is part of the curriculum of three departments (Cell and Developmental Biology, Biology, Physiology and Psychology). This is a four-credit course for graduate and upper level undergraduate students.

Mammal Reproductive Endocrinology: A study of the physiological and behavior actions for reproductive hormones, which are responsible for the regulation of the reproductive systems and behavior. Topics include: The properties and mechanisms of action of pituitary gonadotropin and sex steroid hormones, the anatomy and endocrine regulation of the reproductive tracts (reproductive & maternal behavior), mechanisms of fertilization, implantation and development, the (neuro) endocrinology of mating and maternal behavior, pregnancy, and contraception.
