Assessment
and Goals
:

Students will be assessed using a combination of exams to test their understanding of the factual material from various fields, projects to show their ability to apply those ideas to real data, and reports and presentations showing their ability to independently research relevant topics and summarize and present their findings.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THE DISCIPLINE IS INTERESTED IN OFFERING MORE INTERDISCIPLINARY COURSES AND WE THINK THIS WOULD BE A GOOD OPTION FOR STUDENTS INTERESTED IN COMPUTING IN THE BIOLOGICAL FIELD.
