UGR 010 Undergraduate Research (On-campus)

A non-credit bearing research experience.  Students are enrolled in this course when they are official member of a campus-based research project usually funded through the URCCP program but other options are available.  The goals of the course include: (1) to enhance student learning by providing opportunities for the engagement of challenging, collaborative and directed projects in an apprentice-mentor relationship with faculty, and to help students understand the critical interplay between collaboration and independent thought and action in any team effort to engage a complex, open-ended project; (2) to foster student-faculty interaction in creative work; (3) to enhance students’ communication skills; and (4) to provide experience that would be helpful to students who wish to pursue subsequent research and learning/creative opportunities (e.g., off-campus, summer research programs, or international learning opportunities) and offer experience that allows students to build their self-confidence to pursue careers and make informed career and graduate school decisions for further study beyond Berea.
