Directed Studies in Marine Science – Fall

Overview: The object of this course is to learn how to undertake an independent research project in your field of interest. Working independently or in pairs, you will design, implement, analyze the data you collect, investigate background, peer-reviewed, scientific literature, write and present your research  proposal, write a scientific report as for publication in a journal, and present your results in a symposium setting. You will design your project to take advantage of laboratory and/or field opportunities at BMSC. Faculty, resident researchers, and staff will provide mentorship.

Research and Practical Skills: You will learn how to conduct scientific research starting from the germination of a question of scientific interest; develop hypotheses, and alternative hypotheses; investigate how to approach answering your research question, considering the design, sample size, and time management; troubleshoot methods, equipment needs, and demonic intrusion; investigate, read, and understand relevant background peer-reviewed literature; and learn how to write and present your research.
