BIOL-340 Research Tutorial
Fall for 2016-2017
Spring for 2016-2017
Tutorial research is taken primarily by third year students who wish to begin a research project that may continue on to the senior year as RISE (Research Intensive Senior Experience). This course is available to students majoring in Biology, Biology of Global Health, Environmental Biology or Neurobiology, and to students obtaining a minor in Biology. This research project must be developed in conjunction with a faculty member. Faculty mentors can be from other departments (including the Medical Center), but students must then have a co-mentor of record from within the department and register using their section number. Weekly meetings with faculty members and a final paper are typically expected.
There are separate section numbers for each faculty mentor (see list on Registrar's page). This course replaces BIOL-300; students may not take BIOL-340 if they have previously enrolled in BIOL-300. Enrollment requires the permission of the instructor and development of a syllabus tailored to the student and project. Fall and spring.
