GREEK 1904: Undergraduate Research Assistantship (1–3 credits)
LATIN 1904: Undergraduate Research Assistantship (1–3 credits)
These courses enable advanced majors (or, under exceptional circumstances, advanced minors) to receive academic credit for serving as assistants to faculty members who are conducting research projects (e.g., compiling a bibliography for a new class, preparing a work for publication, creating a conference presentation, et cetera). These collaborative projects will result in a meaningful experience that will provide the student with a foundation in the mechanics of research and publication.
Given the variable aspects of this learning experience, there is no official syllabus. However, students and faculty who participate in this course are required to submit a signed contract to the department prior to the start of the semester in which the teaching assistantship is to occur. This contract is subject to approval by the undergraduate committee.
