Distinction in the P.O.E.

To receive distinction in the POE, student must complete a senior experience that integrates several areas of their POE.  This requirement can be fulfilled in many ways.  Some possibilities might include: an original independent creative project that involves significant academic work, such as laboratory research resulting in a significant report; a major paper on a well-defined project; a body of artistic work equivalent to a major exhibition or performance;  or field experience (e.g. student teaching and certain internships) culminating in a significant report. The project and number of credits must be approved and evaluated by two faculty members.  To achieve distinction in the POE, the project must be judged  worthy by the evaluating faculty members and it must be presented in a forum open to all interested parties, either at Juniata or to an outside audience such as the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR).

The Curriculum Committee shall establish minimum qualifying standards for students wishing to engage in the senior experience.  Departments and programs will be free to establish further requirements
