Learning Community:Biology that Matters

Introduction to the Principles and Relevance of Biology - HONORS COLLEGE BIOLOGY MAJORS ONLY

The goal of this undergraduate research learning community is to provide our honors students with the skill set required to design and execute a modest research project independently. We want to provide our students with the ability to apply the scientific method comfortably and effectively to a range of research questions. Each lab course, therefore, is intended to immerse our students in the process of science. This immersion requires brainstorming among peers, hypothesis development, the design of the proper experiment and necessary control experiments, the collection and analysis of results, and the communication of methods and results through a manuscript and/or oral presentation.
