Government Research Internship


No prerequisites


This course is the first semester of a year long program to introduce undergraduate students to the research process in the social sciences. In this program, students will get hands on experience by engaging in research projects in the areas of peace and development. Students will also have the opportunity to develop and present their own research ideas in the form of a research proposal. Throughout the course, we will discuss issues encountered when conducting applied social science research. Students are required to take both semesters of this year long research course. 


Students will be graded based on contributing to the overall team research as well as on individual research projects.
