The project, which may take many forms, draws on and extends knowledge, skills of analysis, and creative achievement developed through previous academic work in chemistry. The student initiates the project, identifies an area of chemistry to be explored, and proposes a method of inquiry appropriate to the topic. The project should include a reflection on the social context, the body of literature or the conceptual framework to which it is a contribution. It must be shared with the College community through posters, presentations or other means. The project may be within chemistry, across disciplines or in a cross-disciplinary study area. The project is supervised by a chemistry faculty mentor. Prerequisite: Approval of faculty mentor and department chair of the student’s major(s). Consult faculty mentor for project guidelines. The course is repeatable for up to a total of eight credit-hours.
