SCI 486-489 Natural Sciences Seminar Research 1-4cr

This course is for students doing research for their natural sciences seminar. After completing SCI 390 Research Design, students are ready to begin their independent research projects. Working directly with a faculty research mentor, each student will finalize an hypothesis, develop detailed experimental design plans, become familiar with the current scientific literature related to the topic, conduct the research, and submit a written report. It is expected that the student will invest 40 hours of effort per credit hour. A minimum of 2 credit hours is required. Students will inform the Natural Science Seminar coordinator who their research mentor is and their tentative research topic to aid scheduling the presentations.
