CPHYS 1400 Research Experiences in Natural Science

This course will give students an opportunity to explore current topics in scientific research and visualize themselves as scientists by working in small groups with professional scientists. During the course, students will pass through three to four research modules, each focused on a different aspect of science and include lecture, discussion, field trips, hands-on data collection and data analysis. Each module will explore up to date primary literature, and take students to field and laboratory sites around the greater Boston area. The course is geared towards students interested in entering scientific fields as well as non-science majors who want a hands-on, active experience in science.
