Research Exposed! (GEN ST 391 D) offers an oppor­tu­nity to learn about cur­rent, excit­ing research in a wide vari­ety of dis­ci­plines, includ­ing the process of dis­cov­ery, how fac­ulty come up with an idea for research, how inquiry is struc­tured in the dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines, and how stu­dents can become involved in the knowledge-making process.

Pre­sen­ta­tions by UW fac­ulty focus on spe­cific issues such as ethics and the cul­ture of research. Stu­dents attend weekly, fifty-minute dis­cus­sions and have the oppor­tu­nity to ask the speaker ques­tions fol­low­ing each pre­sen­ta­tion. This course may be repeated for credit (1 credit/quarter-3 quar­ters max); speak­ers and top­ics will vary.
