Student Originated Studies: Linguistics and Native American/Indigenous Studies
Compare offerings and share your lists with others.
In this student-originated studies program, students will pursue independent research projects in Linguistics and Native American/Indigenous Studies with the support of faculty and a learning community of students working in these areas.
The cohort will meet once weekly on Wednesdays, partly in conjunction with the program Language, Power, Story. These sessions will offer discussion, some shared readings, and collaborative work on stages of the research process including identifying sources, refining the topic and thesis, peer-review of drafts, and presentations of findings.
Students should enter the program with a research topic and/or research questions in mind, and they will work with faculty and peers to produce a substantial research paper by the end of the quarter. The scope of the final project will be tailored to reflect the topic, the student's experience level and goals, and whether the student has registered for 8, 12, or 16 credits.
This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:
Linguistics, Native American Studies, History, Education, and related fields.
Credits per quarter Variable Credit Options Available
15 seats total at 8, 12, 16 credits.
