Student presenter

As a Biology, Biochemistry or Chemistry major, a research project is a key element of your NCC degree. That project culminates in a research presentation in our interdisciplinary seminar (BIO/CHM 475).

You will take the seminar course three times. The first two times, you are a participant and register for zero credits (see participant syllabus).

After completing a research project (see presenter syllabus to learn more about kinds of research projects), you register as a presenter for one credit and present your results during that term.

Seminar is offered every term and meets for one hour on afternoons. Students of any level can take the course as participants, and any student may attend individual seminars without being registered for the course. In addition to student speakers, alumni and other working scientists are invited to present seminars on their work that can help you in considering possible career paths. The current term's schedule is below.
