WIN 2017 Research Exposed Course!

Enroll in Research Exposed! for Winter Quarter (General Studies 391 D, 1-credit)

Research Exposed! (GEN ST 391 D) offers undergraduates an opportunity to learn about current, exciting research in a wide variety of disciplines, including the process of discovery, how faculty come up with an idea for research, how inquiry is structured in the different disciplines, and how students can become involved in the knowledge-making process.

Presentations by UW faculty from diverse fields focus on their own cutting-edge research and how undergraduates can get involved in the knowledge-making process at this research university. Students attend weekly, fifty-minute discussions and have the opportunity to ask the speaker questions following each presentation. This course may be repeated for credit (1 credit/quarter-3 quarters max); speakers and topics will vary.
