Academic Discipline.1

This page gives advice to ensure you identify the correct Academic Discipline when submitting a proposal for the Honors Research Symposium.

Why are you asking me to identify a discipline?

We consider your research with care and assign an expert to review every proposal closely. Because research methods differ from discipline to discipline, it is important that we assign the proper discipline expert to determine whether the steps you took followed best academic practices.  For example, when conducting a statistical survey, there are sampling methods which must be followed to obtain valid results. To ensure the correct discipline‚Äôs research standards are applied to your work, we need you to identify clearly what discipline you are working in. Often it will be the discipline of your mentor professor. Have a conversation with your mentor about this question
