Weekly seminar in which students registered for course present the results of research and special projects and faculty and guest speakers present state of the art research areas of the profession. Invitation to all graduate students and faculty in department to attend and join discussion. Each student pursuing a Master degree expected to take this offering once for one hour of credit.

The course content is not changing. The format of the course is not conducive to letter grading, graduate students have to do presentation and have to attend all other professional presentations given by departmental faculty or guest speakers. Therefore S/U grading is a more suitable grading method as it is recommended in the Graduate Handbook:
