Undergraduate Language Science Research: LSci 195A-B-C (was Linguis 195A-B-C before
- Overview: Courses in the 195x series are for undergraduate students working with language
science faculty on research. Students enrolled in any of these courses engage in faculty-supervised
research, participate in research seminars, and attend both language science research
presentations and reading groups as available throughout the quarter. This allows
them to gain valuable experience with the research process (including literature review,
project design and implementation, research presentation, and research writing), culminating
with their own language science research contribution.
The course sequence is coordinated by the Undergraduate Director of the Language Science
- Interested students obtain permission from their faculty advisor to enroll in the
appropriate course (195A for fall, 195B for winter, and 195C for spring).
- The faculty advisor then contacts the Undergraduate Director of the Language Science
B.A. confirming that the student has permission to enroll in the appropriate 195x
course, to be supervised by that faculty member.
- The Undergraduate Director will provide an authorization code that the student can
use to enroll in the appropriate 195x course.
- At the end of the quarter, the student will provide a progress report to the supervising
- The supervising faculty member will send this report to the Undergraduate Director
of the Language Science B.A., along with a recommended grade for the student.
- The Undergraduate Director will submit the student's final grade for the 195x course.
