This course series is reserved for seniors who want to earn departmental honors. During the two semesters of work the student must go beyond the level of ordinary undergraduate work. Results of the work should approach the level of a master’s thesis. Course requires both comprehensive written examinations in the field of biology and an oral presentation to the staff of the work accomplished. The title of the student’s investigation will appear in the honors ceremony program. A student’s entry to this course must be approved in detail by the department head and another biology faculty member prior to registration.
