Biology/Chemistry 475
Winter 2016  •  Mondays 4:00-5:00 p.m. • Library 11
Coordinator: Dr. Nick Boaz (ncboaz@noctrl.edu)

Student presenter

Biology, Biochemistry and Chemistry students do research as part of their major requirements and present their results in our interdisciplinary seminar (BIO/CHM 475).

You will take the seminar course three times. The first two times, you are a participant and register for zero credits (see participant syllabus).

After completing a research project (see presenter syllabus to learn more about the kinds of research projects that can be presented), you register as a presenter for one credit and present your results during that term.

Seminar is offered every term and meets one hour once a week on Monday afternoons. Students of any level can take the course as participants, and any student may attend individual seminars without being registered for the course.
