Hort/Crop_sci/Soil_sci 495 allows undergraduate students to be involved with ‘hands on’ field or laboratory research to work closely with individual faculty mentors. The course is aimed at providing students the opportunity to interact one-on-one with faculty mentors within and across departments and gain a more in-depth understanding of literature reviews, experimental design, implementation, and interpretation of research. Students are required to complete an approved final project summarizing their research at the completion of each semester.
