PHL 207 - Philosophy Research Lab (2 Cr.)

Several of Goucher’s philosophy courses include individualized research projects which culminate in final papers. But what does research in philosophy actually entail? What makes for a robust, original research topic? And how does one know where to begin and when to end? This lab explores questions that inspire research, and why they do so. Students will learn how to turn their passions-philosophical but not only-into well-formed, manageable research projects. They will improve at organizing time and resources and recognizing when a project is completed (and when it is not). Each participant will leave the lab with an original, individualized project which they may then turn into a finished paper in the Writing Practicum in Philosophy, if they so choose.
