GEOG 12.01 - Research Design

This is a course guide for GEOG 12.

Course description

This course provides students with the tools and perspectives necessary to plan and conduct independent research in Geography, as well as the ethical foundation for conducting research. The course is structured around the development of a well-crafted research proposal and works best when taken in addition to another research methods class.  Through readings, proposal workshops, and peer review, students develop their own research proposal and plan in conversation with the rest of the class.

Keeping up with Geography journal literature

Want an easy way to keep up with the journal literature for all facets of Geography? And you use a mobile device? You can install the BrowZine app and create a custom Bookshelf of your favorite journal titles. Then you will get the Table of Contents (ToCs) of your favorite journals automatically delivered to you when they become available. Once you have the ToC's, you can download and read the articles you want from the journals for which we have subscriptions.

You can get the app from the App Store or Google Play.

Don't own or use a mobile device? You can still use BrowZine! It's also available in a web version. You can get to it here. The web version works the same way as the app version. Find the journals you like, create a custom Bookshelf, get ToCs and read the articles you want.
