Thesis in Biology
A student with prior departmental approval of a biology thesis proposal registers for this course during the semester in which the research is completed and the thesis is written, presented, and defended (all following department thesis guidelines delineated in the Biology Major Handbook and in consultation with Biology's Thesis Coordinator). Enrollment is by permission of the primary reader/supervising faculty member who also evaluates the student's work. The student develops a written plan of study (syllabus) in collaboration with the faculty member following the guidelines on the Independent Course Contract form available through the Registrar's Office.
Successful completion of BIO 371 and prior departmental acceptance of a thesis proposal.
