AVS 401 - Capstone in Animal Science I


Students will draw together the knowledge and experiences they have gathered in their undergraduate program to create a Capstone experience. This takes the form of a hypothetical or potential project which reflects the culmination of their degree and the work typical of their academic field of study. Students design a hypothetical or potential research project which investigates a problem in animal or veterinary science, aquaculture, or a related field. The hypothetical project may include scientific research in a laboratory, farm,
or field site; literature review; meta-analysis; survey; design problem solving; or other hypothesis-driven testing. Course assignments are designed to teach about research planning, experimental designs, writing research proposals, and presenting their ideas as an oral report to faculty and students. Students are not required to perform research during this course.
