Students may receive academic credit for participation in faculty-supervised research through the course CHM 3990 "Research in Chemistry". Those interested should:
Though specific details will vary depending upon the student / faculty supervisor agreement, our Department has developed some general guidelines regarding the conduct of CHM 3990:
Schedule: Approximately 3-4 hours per week should be spent on research activities for each credit hour received for CHM 3990. Your work schedule [day(s) and time(s)] should be mutually agreed upon by your faculty advisor and you at the beginning of the semester and should be adhered to as closely as possible. Deviations from this schedule should be avoided if possible; requests for rescheduling a period(s) should be made to your faculty advisor in advance.
Lab Work: Students will be supervised by either their faculty advisor or a Department staff member when conducting laboratory work. This supervision is necessary for both safety and liability reasons.
Course Requirements and Grading: Again, the specific details of work assignments and grading schemes will depend upon the agreement reached between student assistant and faculty supervisor. However, the catalog description for CHM 3990 states that "both laboratory and library work are typically included, and a formal report of results is required upon completion of the project. Pass/Fail grading. Credit, 1 - 3 semester hours. May be repeated for a maximum of 6 semester hours. PREREQ: Consent of Department Chair.".
