III CAPSTONE PROJECT

The Biology capstone project, completed in the senior year, provides
a culminating experience that integrates the knowledge and skills learned
in previous courses and applies them to a scholarly activity. Examples of
capstone projects may include original research projects, internships with
state or federal agencies, shadowing experiences with professionals, or
successfully passing professional/ graduate school entrance exams. The
capstone project must be designed or chosen by the student in consultation
with a faculty mentor or advisor, who must approve the project before work
begins. Students should consult with their faculty mentor or advisor before
their senior year commences. All capstone projects will include a written and
oral component (except for professional/graduate school entrance exams).


The capstone project may be completed in one of the
following ways (0-4 credits):

1. Students using a professional or graduate entrance
exam as their capstone project must register for
this course. Students must place in at least the
60th percentile on their exam to successfully
