The project, which may take many forms, draws on and extends knowledge, skills of analysis and creative achievement developed through previous academic work. The student initiates the project, identifies an area to be explored, and proposes a method of inquiry appropriate to the topic. The project should include a reflection on the social context, the body of literature, or the conceptual framework to which it is a contribution. It must be shared with the College community through posters, presentations or other means. The project is supervised by a faculty mentor, with the approval of the department chair of the student’s major(s). This course is repeatable for up to a total of eight credit hours. Prerequisite: Coursework in research methods or permission of the mentor; Approval of faculty mentor and department chair of the student’s major(s). Consult faculty mentor for project guidelines.
