POLS 495 Seminar in Political Science

The course is designed and required as a capstone experience for all criminal justice, law, and the liberal arts, and political science majors. Students are asked to narrow their focus to a significant area of research in their discipline relating to interests developed during previous course work, internships, etc. After determination of this area of interest, students are then tasked with the completion of a project relating to this narrowed topic. The project can be a research paper (utilizing either qualitative or quantitative methodology) or some other creative and useful endeavor agreed upon by the course instructor and student (e.g., development and implementation of high school workshops, development of course lesson plans, case study creation, etc.). This is a repeatable course.
