Individual departments will determine how many credit hours may be applied toward the major requirements.
Undergraduate research and creative works is an inquiry, investigation, or creation produced by an undergraduate student that makes an original contribution to the discipline and reaches beyond the traditional curriculum. Undergraduate research and creative works is designed to provide students with the opportunity to develop and practice advanced discipline-specific projects in collaboration with faculty members.
A student electing to enroll in an Undergraduate Research and Creative Works course must contract with a faculty member to work on an existing research project or to develop a new project, and a specific list of responsibilities must be developed prior to approval. Credit is variable, and depends on the quantity and depth of work.
(Departments should select and/or develop discipline-relevant learning objectives) May include:
The following guidelines for student time invested should be used:
credit hour – approximately 3-5 hours of work per week
credit hours – approximately 6-8 hours of work per week
credit hours – approximately 9-11 hours of work per week
credit hours – approximately 12-15 hours of work per week
Specific assignments are to be determined by the faculty supervisor and student, commensurate with credit hours. In addition, completion dates will be determined for each assignment. Specific assignments may include, but are not limited to:
The student is required to meet with the instructor a minimum of 1/2 hour per week per registered credit hour throughout the semester.
Students will be assigned a letter grade for URCW courses based on departmental guidelines.
