Specific topics for this course are stated in the Undergraduate Class Schedule.

Component(s): Seminar

Notes:
  • This course may be repeated twice for credit in this program, provided the subject matter is different each time. In special circumstances and with permission of the College, a repeat of this course may be replaced by a science course at the 300 level or higher outside the student’s program.
  • Students who have received credit for SCOL 351, 352, or 353 may not take this course for credit if the subject matter is the same.

Prerequisite/Corequisite:

Membership in the Science College is required. If prerequisites are not satisfied, permission of the College is required.
