Actively engage in your own research!
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?
