Research at BSC

One of our department's greatest strengths is our research program. Students planning a career in research get valuable one-on-one training and a head start on their careers. Pre-health students get an edge over other applicants and show professional schools how serious they are. Whatever their end goal, all participants in our research program hone their writing, public speaking, problem solving, critical thinking, and self-discipline skills.

All of our biology majors work closely with a faculty member on a research project for two semesters as part of their Senior Capstone Experience (BI 470, BI 472 or BI 499). They share their research findings with the entire BSC community during the annual Senior Science and Mathematics Conference; some also present at regional or national scientific conferences or even coauthor papers based on their research.

Some of our students seek additional research experience through our Summer Research Associate Program or through independent study course credits during the academic year (BI 293, 393, or 493).
