USP Senior Sequence

In their senior year, all students must complete the senior sequence, USP 186 in the fall, and USP 187 in the winter.

These courses must be taken IN ORDER.

The sequence develops each students ability to:

  1. critically review literature research 
  2. formulate interesting research questions of their own 
  3. design an original research project and investigative strategy 
  4. conduct research 
  5. analyze, interpret, and write up findings 

The final requirement of USP 186 is a research proposal. By the end of USP 187 each student must complete a Senior Research Project.

Because the senior sequence includes an internship, no other internship of field placement will be counted towards the major.
