For information about any of these inactive courses, please contact the Head of the Department.

Science courses are designated by SCI.

1807

Safety in the Scientific Laboratory

introduces students to safety practices required for working in science laboratories where hazards are present. Students complete an online module in Laboratory Safety. Normally, it will be taken before the start of the semester in which students take their first science laboratory course with this prerequisite, and it must be successfully completed no later than the first Friday of the semester. Check department lists of courses to see where this is a prerequisite.

WHMIS

introduces students to Newfoundland and Labrador’s Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS). Students will complete an online module in WHMIS. Normally, it will be taken before the start of the semester in which students take their first science laboratory course with this prerequisite, and it must be successfully completed no later than the first Friday of the semester. Check department lists of courses to see where this is a prerequisite.

Senior Science Seminar

is a review of current topics in science discussed in a seminar format. Seminars will be presented by faculty, students and guest speakers.

PR: Permission of the Program Chair. This course is restricted to students in the General Science program who have completed 80 credit hours or more.

4950

Senior Project

requires students to work either individually or in pairs on developing a poster presentation on specific scientific topics of current interest. This will require a detailed proposal, followed by the necessary relevant research in appropriate journals and Internet sources. Participants in this course will organize a mini-conference, to be held at the end of semester, at which these posters will be presented. Where appropriate, students will be encouraged to integrate knowledge from at least two different scientific disciplines in the development of this project.

PR: restricted to students in the General Science program who have completed 80 credit hours or more

4951

Honours Project I

is the preparation of a project proposal under the guidance of a faculty supervisor, including a comprehensive bibliographical review, with the aim of producing a well-annotated Bibliography.

PR: Permission of the Program Chair. This course is restricted to students in the General Science program who have completed 80 credit hours or more.

4959

Honours Project II

is a continuation of SCI 4951. Under the supervision of a Faculty Advisor, students will prepare an Honours Thesis. The preparation of this will entail some original research, and will require the student to integrate knowledge from at least two disciplines.

PR: SCI 4951 and permission of the Program Chair
