SCIĀ 490. Research Directed Study in Science. 3 Credit Hours.

This course is designed to refine the research interests of departmental majors, and to gain additional hands-on research skills, including experimental design, methodology, and exposure to technology and instrumentation appropriate for a more extensive research project. Direct interaction of faculty and students will be required, and students will be matched with a faculty member most closely aligned with his/her research interests. The end product of this study will be a scientific paper describing a literature search, precise methodology, data analysis, and discussion of the research. An oral presentation of the research results will be expected, and the paper will be evaluated for publication in an appropriate journal.
Prerequisites: SCI 390 and senior standing or permission of the department chair.
