PREREQ: Application 

ADV Research is a fast-paced course that explores the complexities of real-world topics and issues by analyzing divergent perspectives. The goal is to provide students with the tools to evaluate information accurately and make compelling, evidence-based arguments. Topics are driven by student choice and personal interest, as well as the culminating projects. The course involves reading and understanding source material in the form of texts and other media, including scholarly resources. Students learn to synthesize information from multiple sources; develop their own perspectives in written essays; and design and deliver oral and visual presentations, both individually and as part of a team.
