Why do I have to take the RES class?

Graduate students who did not meet the general admission requirements, or previous coursework did not cover all necessary content areas, may be required to complete a RES course as part of their graduate degree program:

  • RES500: Fundamentals of Quantitative Analysis 


  • RES501: Fundamentals of Research and Writing 

These courses are designed to prepare students for the coursework requirements they will encounter throughout their program. You can view a sample syllabus for these courses, including learning outcomes, on the booklist in your student portal.
