Non-thesis graduate students have the opportunity to take up to 6 credits of Direct Independent Study towards their elective requirements and will have the opportunity to work closely with faculty members conducting research.
Thesis graduate students works closely with a faculty member on an extensive research project that culminates in a scholarly paper. Only students with strong writing skills who are capable of doing a substantial independent research project should choose the thesis track. The thesis track gives graduate students the opportunity to gain knowledge and expertise in a particular field.
Student/Volunteer Access and Training Form
The student/volunteer access and training form is required for every student or volunteer participating in research, whether in a research laboratory or laboratory classroom. The form is used to grant access to facilities, verify that trainings have been completed and register students if taking DIS/DIR. Volunteers will have additional paperwork. Please note: faculty, staff and post docs must also complete required trainings prior to conducting research and this is the responsibility of the faculty (PI). Contact Debra Bradley if you have questions.
