Scope of Research Projects
The scope, or size and complexity, of research projects differ substantially between the thesis and non-thesis (distance) programs at UNK. Thesis projects tend to be larger and more complex due to the significant time commitment to research -- near full time for about two years. While the research project for non-thesis students is composed of BIOL 831 coursework -- six one-credit segments. In addition, thesis students tend to have more resources to draw upon for research projects such as laboratory space, funding and expertise of on-site personnel.
