The first seminar session of each semester is dedicated to an orientation to the Fieldwork process. Students who are enrolled in FDWC I and those who are preparing to start their Fieldwork are urged to attend the Fieldwork orientation seminar. All students registered for FDWC I and FDWC II should regularly attend the monthly Fieldwork seminars. These seminars will cover Fieldwork specific issues such as Human Subjects Protection and Institutional Review Board issues, project design and methodology, data analysis issues and/or difficulties as well as other related topics.
