BIO-4920 Senior Thesis

3 credits

Prerequisite: Senior Standing.

The Senior Thesis requires students to conduct an individual research project, write a thesis, conduct an oral presentation and prepare a paper for publication. This capstone course allows the student to combine the skills and knowledge gleaned from previous courses with a self-designed research project that requires the student to ask a good question, develop appropriate techniques, and conduct appropriate research. The research topic is to be chosen by the student in consultation with a faculty. A thesis outline must be submitted to the supervising faculty member (or members) prior to commencement of research. This type of practical, hands-on experience may be conducted at locations off campus, in conjunction with a work-study project, internships, or on-campus research. The project must be completed within two semesters.
