This course is designed to help students learn research, writing, and oral communications skills that they can apply to all academic and professional pursuits. The ultimate goal is to complete a well-written, strongly argued, and thoroughly documented Senior Research Project. This course and the Senior Research Project you will produce this semester are designed as a capstone experience: the goal is to use the knowledge you have gained throughout your program in order to produce an original, well designed, well-researched and well-written piece of research. The course will include a combination of group meetings (at the beginning and the end of the semester), mandatory peer-group meetings, and mandatory one-on-one meetings with the instructor.
