UNV 101. I Am Miami. (1)

Through reflection, self-assessment and group discussions, students gain a sense of belonging at Miami, plan how to make the most of their time at Miami, and establish a foundation for academic and co-curricular success.

UNV 171. First-Year Research Experience I. (1-3)

This course continues the student's training and experience in conducting research in the relevant content area. Specifically, whereas the focus in UNV 171 was on the design of a research project, this semester will focus on the implementation of the project, as well as the subsequent data analysis and presentation of results. After completing this course, students will have conducted a research process from beginning to fruition, and will thus be adequately trained to partake in supervised yet independent research or creative activity with a faculty mentor. The course serves a number of purposes, such as: practicing careful data collection, preparing data and conducting appropriate statistical analyses, scientific writing according to the conventions of the discipline, professionally presenting research results in a variety of formats, and socializing students within a community of scholars.
