The Research Course

utm290H5 Launching Your Research: Across the Atlantic and Back 

This 200-level utmONE Scholars seminar offers an engaging and interactive way to build upon the research skills developed in a first-year utmONE Scholars seminar. You will gain hands-on experience collecting and analyzing data, while also earning a 0.5 credit that counts towards your distribution requirements (HUM or SCI). There is also an opportunity to participate in an international field-study experience during the 2019 February reading week. 

The course includes an optional field-study experience to sites of historical and ecological interest in the Dominican Republic. The international field-study experience will occur during the 2019 February Reading Week. There will be an additional fee for this experience. For more infomation about fees and available bursaries visit UTM Abroad.  As an integral learning experience, the international field-study experience is highly recommended. 

Course Description: 

Before 1492, no one in Europe ate tomatoes, no one in South America herded cattle, no one in Asia cooked with chili peppers, and no one in North America fell sick with influenza. The exchange of plants, animals, and microbes between the Americas and Afro-Eurasia in the wake of Christopher Columbus’ first voyage across the Atlantic forever changed the world’s histories and ecologies. In this course we will examine these changes, which created global systems and ecological challenges that continue to shape our world today.
