A new pilot course exposes students to the world of collaborative research between College of Charleston and the Medical University of South Carolina.
The course: A one-credit class taught as an Express II course (runs from Oct. 12-Nov. 29). The class will meet on Wednesdays from 12:15 – 1:45 p.m.

The benefits: The perfect way for aspiring student researchers to…
- Learn about the expectations of research
- Prepare themselves for the laboratory environment
- Set themselves up as competitive candidates for research positions at MUSC and beyond
- Students can earn credit for BIOL 399 or PSYC 497, depending on their major
Great fit for: The course is open to all students interested in conducting pre-clinical research in a laboratory setting, particularly those who may not yet have any formal research experience. A terrific opportunity for those interested in conducting research at MUSC.
