Are you interested in undergraduate research in the biological, environmental, or physical sciences? Would you like to:
- Demystify research culture and develop research skills?
- Discuss research papers with a diverse community of undergraduate researchers?
- Develop a research proposal and increase your competitiveness for research scholarships and graduate & professional programs?
- Present your research in oral and written formats & improve your science communication skills?
Integrated Sciences 491/492 (2 credits; Thursdays, 9-10:20 a.m.) is a discussion-based course that is designed to accompany undergraduate research experiences. Students must confirm a faculty research mentor before the start of the course.
INTSCI 491 (Introduction to Research) and INTSCI 492 (Reflections on Research) meet together and share in-class activities. They are, however, supported by two distinct series of homework assignments.
