Students whose work includes original research may be selected to share their work at the UCI Undergraduate Research Symposium held during the spring quarter. Building upon the Field Study program, this multi-part program offers students a unique opportunity to make a difference in the world by learning to approach issues with empathy and compassion. When they return to campus, they share their experience through participating in the classroom portion of field study.

To keep the costs neutral for students, additional funds may be available, based on financial need, to cover airfare, housing expenses and program fees. In addition to the school-sponsored programs, students may fulfill the field study requirement through participation in one of the following programs: Students pursuing these programs should seek advising prior to enrolling in the programs.

Unlisted or inappropriate placements, as well as those that could give the appearance of nepotism or preferential treatment, will not be approved. Departmental approval for field study will be determined by the Field Study Director. Further information, including field study sign-up procedures and prerequisites, program applications, and placement opportunities is available at the Field Study Program website.

Because there are many alternative ways to plan a program, some of which may require careful attention to specific major requirements, students should consult with the Social Ecology Student Services Office, Social Ecology I, to design an appropriate program of study. Students who elect one of the majors in the School of Social Ecology in their freshman year might begin by taking the introductory courses required by their major. It is a good idea to take these courses early because they include fundamental concepts that are widely applicable in more advanced courses.

In addition, the lower-division writing requirement of the general education requirement category I should be completed during the first year. In the sophomore year, the student might complete three courses toward the general education requirement, four courses in their major, and four electives. Students who are planning to go on to graduate school can use their freshman and sophomore years to advantage by taking courses in theory, research methods, statistics and other areas important to graduate study.

Particular attention should be paid to planning a program of study that will ensure that major requirements are met prior to graduation.

In the plan, students should include core courses for their major in their junior or early in their senior year. Students in the School of Social Ecology may combine their course work with the following University programs and should consult an academic counselor for further information. The Campuswide Honors Program is available to selected high-achieving students from all academic majors from their freshman through senior years. Students who plan to obtain a teaching credential or a higher degree in the field of education should consult with counselors in the UCI School of Education early in their college career.

When the student is advanced to candidacy, a doctoral committee will be appointed on behalf of the Graduate Council. After the student is advanced to candidacy, a doctoral committee, ordinarily consisting of three members of the faculty, will supervise the preparation and completion of the doctoral dissertation.

At that time, the faculty may recommend that the student continue toward the Ph. A negative evaluation at this point is evidence of failure to maintain satisfactory academic progress.

The final years of doctoral study are devoted to developing and defending a dissertation proposal and conducting dissertation research.

Students must complete all requirements for the Ph. It is expected that most students will complete the degree requirements well in advance of this deadline. For more detailed catalogue information regarding doctoral programs in the School of Social Ecology, please select the appropriate department for which the program is offered.

Several options are available for completing the breadth requirement, including completion of a written comprehensive examination or preparation of a major paper or series of papers that intensively examine specific research issues in Social Ecology.

Preferably, the approach taken should be interdisciplinary. Each student's plans for completing the breadth requirement are developed in consultation with a committee of three Social Ecology faculty members. Students are encouraged to assemble and meet with this committee as early as possible during their graduate career, and are required to do so by no later than the third quarter of their second year of study.

Once the student's plans have been approved and implemented, the committee will review the student's work to evaluate whether the breadth requirement has been fulfilled and to recommend additional work if it is deemed necessary.
