This yearlong course offers students seeking an independent laboratory experience an opportunity to design and execute an original research project of their choice in the biological, physical, or social sciences. Each student works in collaboration with a faculty mentor and a professional research scientist in a format determined by the student, the mentor, and the instructor. Students are required to work two weeks during the summer preceding their enrollment in the class. Students write a critical review paper and a research paper, both in scientific journal format, and present the results of their year’s research to members of the department and others in the Berkshire community.
