Background Information

The SE 195W course can be treated as a cumulative experience, building on the introduction to research methodologies acquired in SE 10, the statistical analysis gained in SE 13 and the Field Observation techniques learned in SE 194W and the Field Placement professional exercise conducted in tandem with the course.  The 195W emphasizes the upper division writing component You have a research paper assigned in this course and this handout will compliment resources that support the research and writing components. 

For your class requirements, you have several components of a large cumulative experience:

  1. Conducting and completing a successful Field Work Placement 
  2. Field Study Case Study

The case study assignment gives you several options in which you can compile your work:

  • literature review in which the scientific research is critically assessed and synthesized
  • formal research paper with traditional outline & cited relevant references
  • should reflect the synthesis matrix that you have proposed
  • demonstrate value of setting for understanding working with a population, defining impact of specific environment, and contextualize the disciplinary "field" that embraces your field placement
  • demonstrate proficiency at conducting scholarly research - including a literature review
