Please join a panel of Mershon Center affiliated faculty and graduate students for an interdisciplinary discussion on the basic ingredients of a good undergraduate research project.
Panel members will cite examples of good undergraduate research projects and
address such questions as:
• How do you develop good research questions?
• What types of methodologies should you use in your research?
• What foundation do you need to have before undertaking a research project? What theories and facts do you need to know? What classes do you need to take?
• How can undergraduates work with the Institutional Review Board?
• How can undergraduates make connections with faculty members?
• Irfan Nooruddin, Associate Professor of Political Science
• Kendra McSweeney, Associate Professor of Geography
• John Carlarne, Peace Studies Coordinator
This has been one of the most successful undergraduate events sponsored by the Mershon Center for the past five years, with more than 70 percent of respondents rating it as extremely valuable.
Co-sponsored with the Undergraduate Research Office.
