As I started thinking about life after Witt, I realized how prepared I am because of the opportunities and relationships I’ve cultivated here. I have had the chance to study abroad, start a student organization, and now my newest adventure: research.
Coming into my senior year, I had a semester that was quite honestly my hardest at Wittenberg. Last semester was my first semester back from studying abroad with the Witt in Wittenberg, Germany, program and I was taking all upper-level course in my major.
One of these courses was Communication 300z: Social Scientific Methods. Essentially, this class was about learning how to read and understand research, as well as learn how to do research. Through the course, each student had to create a research question and look up academic articles and research about that topic. The final paper that we turned in for the course was a methods section that explained how you would do this research and what steps you would follow.
