Research Option

Students may also enroll in 4 credits of F701 Research In Physiology if they wish to incorporate a research experience in their degree. The research credits may be taken in Summer Session I with full time participation and would reduce the spring course load requirement to 11 credits. Students electing this option will be required to complete an on-line Responsible Conduct of Research module.
