Student-Originated Studies: Social Sciences, History, Multiculturalism/Diversity
Winter 2016 quarter
This Student-Originated Studies program is an opportunity for students to do intermediate to advanced work in topics in the social sciences and history. Students will work in small groups or independently on their own in-depth projects or areas of study and may include an internship component if the student has already researched and started the process to get approval from an outside agency with an identified supervisor. Priority is given to students who want to learn about diversity, multiculturalism, and social justice. The format of this program includes weekly meetings to discuss particular assignments and updates on student work.
