Description: In BIOS 350 students conduct investigative studies in the areas of biological science, neuroscience, natural history, ecology, evolution, and/or animal behavior. These studies may encompass original research, instructor-designed experiments, and/or online projects with curated data, depending on the availability of in-person laboratory and/or field experiences. BIOS 350 further advances basic laboratory and/or field experiences, record keeping abilities, and technical communication skills that were introduced and/or reinforced in the intermediate lab course. This course is available to students who cannot reasonably be expected to complete an advanced lab requirement for any major concentration in Biosciences and will substitute for that course requirement, subject to approval by the instructors of the course to be replaced and the BioSciences Undergraduate Curriculum Committee. Registration for this course will be by “instructor permission only.” This course will be either a half or full semester course, credit hours: 1-2.
