HUMA 10000: The What, Why, and How of Research
Tuesdays, 12:30-1:30 PM, Winter Quarter
Regenstein Library 122

Faculty-mentored research experiences can complement and deepen academic work done in the classroom, nurture mentoring relationships, and prepare students for national and international fellowships, graduate study, and diverse careers—but where do you start? This course introduces the basics of undergraduate research for students of all disciplines, covering topics like:

  • Student and Faculty Panels: “Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Undergraduate Research but Were Afraid to Ask”
  • Conducting a Literature Review
  • Special Collections: “Wait, We Have That?”
  • Research Ethics
  • Research Proposals
  • Sharing Your Research

This is a zero-credit course, so it can be taken in addition to a normal course load. Add it to your schedule starting December 5.
