With critical thinking exercises, practical applications, and personal advice, NAVIGATING THE RESEARCH UNIVERSITY provides first-year students with a comprehensive introduction to their education at a research institution. Suitable for freshman experience courses, orientation, or freshman seminars, it will be useful to students at a broad range of research universities and is flexible enough to help instructors incorporate particular aspects of their own institution. Britt Andreatta helps students understand what research is and the role that it plays in the institution, and introduces them to the methodologies used in a variety of disciplines. Andreatta also helps students to develop key skills for thinking, analysis, and writing, and offers them insight into the personal and working issues that may affect them as students or as members of a community of scholars.
