Subsite Background

SSC3319 Junior Research Project


SSC3319 Junior Research Project provides a platform for senior BSS students to gain the skills and knowledge necessary to independently prepare a research project which incorporates the fundamental elements of a full-fledged research project in the Social Sciences. Along with providing individual supervision under an instructor, the Junior Research project includes an optional Service-Learning (S-L) option. Students choosing the S-L option in the SSC3319 Junior Research Project should carefully consider the information listed in the following guideline about project-related responsibilities, expectations of support from the Office of Service-Learning, project timelines, and other logistical matters. This information is essential for fulfilling the S-L Graduation Requirement through SSC3319.



Important Note: If no agency supports your proposed research and S-L ideas, you may not be able to complete the required 30 service-learning hours to fulfil the S-L Graduation Requirement. In 2020-21, only 7 out of 15 enrolled students fulfilled the S-L Graduation Requirement through SSC3319. Therefore, please talk to the S-L coordinator to understand more about the workload of this course before integrating S-L elements into your SSC3319 Junior Research Project. 


As the quotas for the Junior Research Project with S-L elements are limited, please communicate with your research supervisor and confirm your drafted research ideas ASAP to outreach a suitable agency partner for the S-L project.
