Emphasis is placed on providing an experience that will be meaningful to undergraduate students and will promote reasoning and critical-thinking skills, ethical judgment and communication skills, and a deep understanding of the methods of scientific and/or humanities research.

Projects should be developed with the goal of developing students' capacities to find, analyze and evaluate information.

Design projects, applied research, service-learning activities, and visual and performing arts projects are considered part of this effort, as well as basic research.
