Overview

This class is designed to get you ready for your year as an exchange student in the University of Washington Worldwide Program at Sichuan University in Chengdu. The primary emphasis is on writing your individual or group research proposal and doing the other things necessary to prepare you for the research component of your time in Chengdu. Each successive class meeting will lead you closer to this goal, culminating in submission of a full proposal at the end of the quarter. Your grade in the class will depend entirely on the quality of the proposal.
