Registrar description

This foundational class is designed to introduce students to both the ideation and investigation components of research, with milestones guiding students towards a complete thesis in the spring semester. Classes will consist of presentations on research tools (including data, library, and computing resources), crash-courses in common research methodologies, and introduction to LaTeX for typesetting their final theses. Throughout the semester, students will discuss and present their thesis progress in smaller group settings. Past student theses will also be studied as examples.
