Biological Sciences Capstone - BIOL391

In this capstone unit students consolidate their learning across a diversity of units within their programs of study and prepare themselves for appropriate transition to the next stage of their careers. This involves active reflection on prior learning, building and articulating a positive self-understanding, exploring opportunities, clarifying goals, acquiring adequate employability and workplace skills, and building linkages with professional communities and industries. A major objective in this course is to get students to think about, and help students assess, their future career path and the skills required to meet their career aspirations. A series of guest speakers will talk about their own career paths and offer advice on future study, career and employment options. The course also covers key topics such as communicating science, the publication and review process, research ethics, and career pathways.
