BI 380 Faculty Sponsored Research

(1 or 2 Credits)
This course is a 1 or 2-credit laboratory or field research experience that can be taken repeatedly for elective credit with approval of the sponsoring professor and Department Chair. Students read and synthesize literature relevant to their research project and develop a research proposal under the guidance of their faculty research adviser. They then carry out this research project, analyze the data, and write a final research report. Because of the highly specialized nature of this course, students must obtain written approval by the faculty research adviser in order to register for the course, and students must register for the course at least one month prior to the first day of classes. This course cannot be counted as one of the 300-level Biology classes required of all Biology majors.

Prerequisite: BI 242  or permission of the instructor.
