ARCH 6810 - Research Design Seminar


The principal objective of this introductory seminar is to provide stude­­­nts with the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of research design. Research design includes: (1) identifying and selecting focused research problems/opportunities/ideas; (2) documenting the state of the art in the selected research area; (3) identifying the critical resources and settings to carry out the research; (4) designing the research program including strategies and tactics for carrying out the research. It is hoped that the knowledge gained in the RD Seminar will assist students in the development of their own individual thesis proposals while they contribute to active research. B.Arch. students can only register for the 4000 level of this course and M.Arch. students must register only for the 6000 level of this course.

When Offered: Fall term annually.
