2 Credits

Live interactive classes with college professors. Interact with other bright and ambitious students. Official transcript with transferable credits upon completion.

Course Content

The internet age has made the ability to sift through and make sense of overwhelming amounts of information not just valuable, but essential. But, how does one evaluate and use information for effective research? Students in this course learn how to apply critical thinking to turn general curiosity about a topic into real knowledge, grounded in research and supported by evidence. Students will learn to ask the right kinds of questions, find credible sources, determine an author’s argument and effectively communicate a research topic.

After an initial immersion into research methodologies, students will work under the professor in their field of study. The evaluation of the course will primarily be on basis of a research paper that the student submits. High quality research papers that are endorsed by the professors will be published by Scholarly.

Student should have completed class IX or appeared for class IX final exam.
