This course is open to students of all academic backgrounds. Slight preference may be given to students who are relatively early in their Cornell careers, but students of all years are encouraged to apply.
Although most of the students who participate in this course are Life Sciences majors of some type, we certainly encourage non-Biology majors to apply if their interests align with the course content. The small class size allows us to tailor our instruction to the backgrounds of the participating students. We only require that students are enthusiastic and excited about spending time in the field and engaging in the research process.
