SJCE students will undertake research that culminates in a final major paper or alternative form such as a creative work or engaged scholarship project. A creative work could be a textual, visual or performing arts piece. An engaged scholarship project could involve a policy or legal brief, the staging of a major community event, spearheading a major grant application or developing a consciousness-raising campaign through a blog. MRPs will be of similar quality to a thesis, but more limited in scope. All MRPs will involve original scholarship through one of the following three options. 1) A reframing or original interpretation of existing knowledge (within either the Humanities or Social Science traditions), 2) Primary data collection and analysis following the social scientific model, or 3) A substantive creative work or piece of engaged scholarship.
