SCDV - 250. Practicum for Emerging Scientists


1-3 credit(s)
Field study for science students in the early stages of their academic careers. The primary objective is to develop in the student an awareness of how classroom concepts are converted into applications of value in today’s society through participation in ongoing applied or basic research or development programs in a business or industry. The students will work in an area covered by the department of Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Environmental Studies, or Physics and will be supervised by a professional in the field. Students will be required to keep a log of their activities, and prepare a summary report and presentation of their experience at the end of the semester. No student may apply more than 6 credits of SCDV -250 credit towards their degree, and no more than 3 credits of SCDV -250 may be taken in a semester. This course is offered on a pass/fail grading system only.

Prerequisite(s): Prior to taking this course, students must have completed at least 15 credits at Siena, have sophomore standing, completed a two semester science course sequence in the field experience subject area and earned a grade of B or higher in both courses, have an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher, a recommendation from a Siena faculty member in the field experience department, and permission of the School of Science Intern Coordinator.
Attribute: (ATTR:ARTS).
