Undergraduate Information Science

IS U692: Information Science Senior Project

In this capstone course, students conduct term-long empirical research projects, inspired by their cooperative education activities and experiences, that investigate some aspect of the interaction between information technology and its context. During the semester, students reflect on and analyze their cooperative education experience, using the information science literature to interpret and better understand those experiences. Building on the skills acquired in the Empirical Research Methods course, students define a research topic, perform a literature review, plan their research and document this in a research proposal, collect and analyze data, and write an in-depth research report. At the end of the semester, students participate in a seminar in which students present the results of their research.
