300-301-VA, Integrative Project
This course takes you through the steps toward producing a 2500-word research paper on a social science issue. You will be helped to choose a topic, develop a thesis statement, and the supporting evidence for it from different disciplines within social science. Your project will permit you to demonstrate your library research skills and your communication skills, both written and oral.
A passing grade for the whole IP project (between 70 and 80% of the final grade) shall be considered the Épreuve Synthèse in the Social Science Program, and all the steps will have to be submitted in the proper sequence in order for you to receive the credit for the Épreuve Synthèse.
