What is a research project?

Each student chooses their own theme to investigate and creates their own research plan. Students identify both domestic and international issues. They then develop their problem solving skills by researching possible solutions. Finally, they prepare a report detailing their findings.

What is fieldwork?

Fieldwork is the process of carrying out research outside the classroom. Students learn to collect information themselves without relying on the Internet. Examples of fieldwork include: interviews, questionnaires, observations and case studies.
