This course serves as the capstone course for the Biology Program. During this course the student will demonstrate the application of the knowledge gained throughout the program. This will be achieved either by independent study on a topic chosen by the student with guidance from a faculty member or through participation in a field internship with an approved industry partner. Independent study will involve the investigation of all sides of a current biological issue. In either case, the student will turn in a written paper and also make a presentation of his/her project to all interested students and faculty in a student seminar.  (Prerequisites: All science and MATH courses with grades of “C” or higher and the approval of the Department Chair of Natural Sciences; only offered in the final semester of the Biology program.)
