BI 480 - Senior Research Project or Internship II

3 credits All senior biology students must complete a Biology Senior Research Project/Internship under supervision of a faculty mentor. For a research project on campus, the student will meet with his/her mentor on a regular basis (6 to 9 hours per week) to discuss the literature relevant to a chosen area of biology. Under the faculty member’s guidance, the student will select a question of interest, develop a hypothesis to address the question and design experiments to test the hypothesis. Data collection will span both fall and spring semesters and will culminate with statistical analysis and interpretation of collected data. The student will complete a senior thesis that details the process and interprets results along with reviewing relevant literature. For an internship, the student will follow the college guidelines and will have an internship supervisor and a faculty mentor. The internship may take place over one or two semesters, and it requires a minimum of 120 credit hours per semester. If it involves only one semester, then the student will be required to register for a second internship or an on-campus senior research project for the other semester. The work for the Senior Research Project/Internship will be presented in a form of a poster to interested members of the college community during the final weeks of spring semester. Prerequisites: SC 102 (including lab) and BI 470.
