Course Description:

Inquiry is the foundation for this interdisciplinary capstone course. It provides a forum for critical thinking about substantive issues, problems, and themes that affect the world, our society, our communities, and our selves. Throughout the semester, students will be challenged to ask critical questions, evaluate evidence, create connections, and present ideas in writing. This process prepares students for developing and presenting a culminating thesis through which they demonstrate proficiency in the graduation standards of writing and information literacy. Because the final paper is essential in demonstrating this proficiency, students must complete the final paper with a grade of C- or better in order to pass the course. This course is required for students planning to graduate and should be taken within the year prior to graduation once all competency area requirements have been satisfied. Prerequisite: English Composition and a Research & Writing Intensive course or equivalent skills.

Essential Objectives:

1. Explain how questions are framed and knowledge is gained through various methods of inquiry, including the scientific method, statistical analysis of data, research, literature, and the process of writing and dialogue.
2. Investigate the philosophical and ethical questions arising from issues pertaining to identity, community, knowledge, truth, change and responsibility.
3. Focus written work around an explicit central thesis, a position statement or proposition advanced by the writer that is arguable and supportable and develop the thesis systematically, using specific details and relevant supporting evidence.
4. Demonstrate advanced skills of reading, writing and critical thinking in both group and individual work.
5. Collect, organize, critically evaluate and properly cite information.
6. Compose, revise, and edit a final paper that includes an implied or explicit thesis statement, integrates five or more scholarly and professional sources, including primary and secondary evidence as needed, to address an academic research question, and demonstrates proficiency in the graduation standards of writing and information literacy by achieving a grade of C- or better.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
