Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

CONDUCTING A 5-CREDIT RESEARCH PROJECT IN ONE SEMESTER IS TOO MUCH FOR EVEN THE MOST ABLE STUDENTS. YEAR AFTER YEAR, STUDENTS HAVE MADE VERBAL AND WRITTEN REQUESTS TO SPREAD OUT THE COURSE REQUIREMENTS OVER THE ACADEMIC YEAR. THE 1-CREDIT SOC 4901 COURSE (TAKEN IN THE FALL SEMESTER) WILL ALLOW STUDENTS TO PREPARE FOR THEIR IN-DEPTH PROJECTS IN THE SPRING, PARTICULARLY THOSE WHO WISH TO SUBMIT IRB APPLICATIONS IN ORDER TO CONDUCT RESEARCH WITH HUMAN SUBJECTS.
