BIO 291 - Directed Research in the Biological Sciences (1-2 Cr.)


Under the direction of a program faculty member, students conduct laboratory or field research. Students initially write a brief research plan, outlining major goals of the research project. Upon completion of the research, students submit a report written in the form of a journal article to the faculty sponsor. The course may be repeated once with the same, or a different, faculty member. Only two credits of directed research may be counted toward the 38-credit total for the biology major. Prerequisites: Sophomore standing or permission of the program. Students who wish to be considered for honors within the biology major must complete an appropriate senior independent research course. Variable semesters.
