Research-Related Skills Courses

Research-Related Skills (RRS) courses promote the development of scholarly writing, critical scholarly literature review, and research presentation skills during a student’s undergraduate research experience. Students in RRS courses are enrolled in a research-intensive undergraduate course (e.g. RELI/ANTH/PSYC 395) for a maximum of 3 credits. In addition to their assigned research hours, students participate in a recitation section that meets weekly for 1 hour in a group setting where they engage in reading, analyzing, and presenting scholarly literature, as well as on writing abstracts and giving talks on their research to different audiences.
