Course Description

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.
