    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    HNRS 110 with Professor Kappel was definitely the most interesting and engaging class I have taken in my life. By allowing each student to conduct research on any topic they chose, we were allowed enough flexibility to pick a research niche that we could significantly contribute to based off of our personal attributes and experience. Yet, we were given enough support throughout the entire semester, through one-on-one research plan meetings and frequent feedback, in order to avoid dead ends in the writing and/or research process.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course was the research presentation event that was held at the end of the year. Each section of HNRS 110 voted on our three favorite projects, and those students were allowed to print out their research posters and present them at the seminar. The main thing that I learned throughout this process was the ability to methodologically analyze a topic on every imaginable angle, and narrow the focus of the topic if needed in order to explore all possible views within the time period allotted. I additionally learned how to navigate academic database like Medline exceedingly well.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    The main advice that I would give is to spend a large chunk of time picking one's research topic, and thoroughly making sure that enough current scholarship is available to write about. This step is, by far, the most crucial. I know so many people who ended up having to scrap most of their project half-way through the year, because they suddenly realized that their chosen topic was unfeasible.
