Senior Capstone Rsrch Seminar

Fall 2019

Taught By: Alexandra Delano

Section: A

CRN: 2021

Credits: 1 TO 4

All Global Studies majors must complete a final capstone requirement in the form of a research proposal that reflects the best application of students’ analytical, writing, and research skills. To this end the course will help you clearly formulate your research design, plan the writing of your project/thesis, and allow you to learn from your colleagues. The course is heavily interactive—we will work primarily with materials provided by you, the students. Using secondary texts and your own work we will cover issues such as formulating a research problem, defining your concepts, situating yourself in the literature, finding, using and presenting data, and the writing process. The senior project may take slightly different forms for each person, but for all students must reflect the ability to synthesize complex information, present ideas clearly and creatively, situate your ideas in a larger context, and convincingly make an argument that is relevant to this field of inquiry. It is a scholarly endeavor that creatively reflects knowledge and experience obtained both inside and outside the classroom. Students will develop a full research proposal for an individual project on a topic of their own choosing. Spring graduates will sign up for Section A and Fall graduates will sign up for Section B. Those who wish to carry out the project as a thesis can apply for the Senior Capstone Writing Workshop (3 credit) in the Spring, which will require submitting their research proposal to the department for approval and having fulfilled the requirement of a research methods course.
