Students are required to begin a research project during their first year with the goal of completing it by the end of the fall term their second year. The project must be written up in the form of an article suitable for submission to a journal although publications is not an explicit part of the requirement. During the second year, the student will present the results of the project to the program proseminar.

First-year students are assigned an initial advisor with whom to work. The first-year project may be conducted collaboratively with that faculty member and such collaborative research is strongly encouraged. However, students may conduct more independent projects or collaborate with other faculty members if they wish.

Students will begin discussing the First-Year Research Project with their advisor in the fall term of their first year. They will register for the First-Year Research Project (COMM 699) with the faculty member with whom they are collaborating during both the winter academic term of their first year and the fall academic term of their second year.
