Some of the most essential skills for natural scientists include the abilities to investigate, organize, and present concepts to their peers--both orally and in written format. In this course, each student presents a 15-20 minute oral presentation on his/her research project and submits a formal thesis to the College archives. Attendance at weekly student presentations throughout the term is required. The thesis is presented in a format that mirrors that of a peer-reviewed article and includes a title, abstract, introduction, methods, results, and discussion. A completed Research and Disciplinary Discourse paper must be submitted before the end of this course. The scheduling for the seminar presentation takes place during SCI 3900 Capstone Research Design one year before the presentation. Prerequisite: SCI 4890 Advanced Natural Science Capstone Research.
