Planning a Course of Study
Tips for Course Selection
- Whenever your curriculum allows, select courses that relate to your interests. Choose research topics that will be applicable to your future career.
- Although your culminating project may be a year or two away, begin to think about a topic and a feasible research method for it. This may influence your course selection as there are often topic and research method courses available in specific disciplines.
- Learn about the professional aspects of your field and do what you can to become involved in related courses of study, conferences or internships as soon as possible. This can benefit you in the learning process, as well as serve as a career enhancement.
