Biology

Senior Capstone Experience

Biology majors fulfill the requirement for the Senior Capstone Experience in one of two ways—by completing an independent laboratory or field research project, or by writing an in-depth scientific monograph. Both options are under the direction of a faculty member.

Students begin thinking about their SCE well before the senior year. Summer research opportunities, the senior seminar in the fall semester and the credit-bearing SCE course in the final semester help guide students through the process.
