APSC 710 - Research Project


Fall (2)

Students will select a faculty advisor in their area of research interest, undertake a research project, and write a paper describing their research. This course is normally taken after a student has completed 18 credit hours toward the MS degree. However, students are advised to begin the process of selecting a research area and an advisor, and to begin meeting with the advisor before completing 18 credits. It is not open to students who receive credit for APSC 700 . Students wishing to register for APSC 710 must submit a short abstract describing their research project to the Graduate Director at least two weeks before the class is scheduled to begin. The faculty member who will direct the research must sign this abstract. Any tenure track faculty may direct a research project. Any student, who is unable to convince any other faculty member to be their APSC 710 advisor, will be assigned to the Applied Science graduate program director. Any student in this situation must still submit a short abstract to the Graduate Director for approval at least two weeks before the semester begins. Completion of the course includes completion of the project, writing a report and receiving approval from the advisor. All requirements must be completed by the last day of classes (not of the exam period) for the student to receive credit in a given semester.
