COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
SS497 SENIOR STUDIES IN ECONOMICS 1985 2 Social Sciences 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course represents a unique opportunity for in-depth and integrated study. After electing to major in Political Science or Economics in Third Class Year, the cadet will be paired with a tenured Associate Professor who provides individualized counseling and collaborative research guidance during Second Class Year. During this period, the cadet chooses a particular area of interest for research in the appropriate SS49- course in the eighth term. At the beginning of the First Class Year, the cadet is assigned a faculty advisor based on congruent research interests. Working in liaison with this advisor, the cadet designs and executes research in the selected area of interest. The objectives of this research are: (1) to synthesize and cohere the cadet's studies across core, area, and elective course work; (2) to apply methodological skills of research design, conceptual reasoning, analysis, and research gained to a selected area of substantive interest; (3) to extend the cadet's in-depth study of the selected area of interest beyond the level obtained in this course work; (4) to design and conduct focused research beyond the constrained opportunities in elective courses; and (5) to develop cadet skills in conceptual reasoning, critical analysis, and effective writing.
LESSONS: 0 @ 0 min (0.000 Att/wk) LABS: 0 @ 0 min
