Course Description


The Research Process in the Biological Sciences (INCO501H) is a highly practical class.  You will learn how to do a proper literature search using the rich variety of tools available in the UNH Library system.  This literature search is in preparation for writing a research proposal, the main goal of the class.  In addition, we will help you identify potential professors who will serve as your research advisors.  Overall, we hope that this proposal will serve as a good template for you to apply for research funding from the Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research (UROP and IROP).
