Course Outcomes

  1. Explain the process of ecological change both in the long term (evolutionary change) and in the short term (succession).
  2. Utilize the tools of science through ecological field study focused on local ecosystems in Southeastern Massachusetts.
  3. Analyze data, modeling the way in which scientist handle data, including the use of statistical methods and computers for analysis of data sets.
  4. Compile scientific findings using the primary methods by which scientists communicate with their peers including composing original research papers, oral presentations and poster presentations.

Accredited by and in partnership with Bristol Community College. Classes start the week of September 5. Dates and times unconfirmed.
