An International Research Experience Seminar jointly offered by the Departments of Anthropology and Political Science for their majors.
ANTH 477: Special Topics, International Research Experience
POLI 476: International Research Experience
Wednesday, 2:00 PM-4:30 PM
In this research seminar, students explore key concepts and methodologies in political science and anthropology in order to conduct their own research projects in a specific part of the world. Such topics as health, education, foreign policy, globalization, migration, regional economy, and cultural influences on development will be considered. The course will address the methods appropriate to conduct research on these topics ranging from conducting interviews to gathering statistical data. Students will work closely with the course instructors to develop and design an original research project. The course includes a faculty-led site visit to Bangkok, Thailand over Spring Break (March 14-22) so students may gain experience in conducting research first hand in an international setting. Students will also work with partner faculty at local universities in Thailand who will aide their research projects.
