BIOL 493 Senior Capstone - Course

BIOL 493-Senior Capstone Each Biology major will perform a capstone experience in their senior year. The experience can take the form of research, an internship or course, and will provide significant learning experiences in problem solving and written and oral communication. Capstone Course: We will offer capstone 'sections' of UL courses on a rotating basis. Some of these courses will be modifications of currently existing courses; other will be new courses. Examples may include Molecular Biology of Disease, Cancer Biology, and Evolution. Courses will be designed to include significant inquiry based learning, problem solving, and written and oral presentation' enrollment will be limited and carefully controlled. Students will write a formal paper and offer a formal presentation. Note: Students opting for a capstone experience that does not involve significant laboratory or field work will be required to take at least one lab or field course as part of their 12 hours of upper level Biology electives.
