Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
LSC 205 provides an opportunity for students to gain experience as Class Assistants within the Life Sciences First Year Program and to reflect on that experience as it relates to their own college experiences, personal growth, and professional development. Expectations, to be detailed in the LSC 205 contract, will include attendance at all LSC 205 class meetings, attendance at all class meetings of the section for which you are working as Class Assistant, and completion of written reflection assignments. Instructor consent required.

Peer Class Assistants in LSC 101 and LSC 103 are an important part of the Life Sciences First Year Program.  This course formalizes their training and participation.  Experienced Class Assistants who decide to repeat LSC 205 will have more advanced responsibilities than those participating for the first time.
