Undergraduate Research Methods Teaching in Political Science: A Comparative Perspective
Unformatted Document Text:  many years to complete an undergraduate degree.

many years to complete an undergraduate degree. Many countries require three years
instead of four, and others require an additional fourth year to attain an honor’s
degree. Finding a common definition of an undergraduate degree has provoked a
strongly contested debate in Europe.
Standardizing module weighting to this level of detail proves far too
cumbersome, time consuming, and difficult to justify the effort. For the purposes of
this study, module data only used to construct simple distribution tables, so such a
precise level of standardization is unnecessary. This paper adopts a quick rule of
thumb that modules are all generally equivalent. Most universities operate on an eight
to ten module workload per year. Credit weightings are collected in order to classify
modules as a half, single, or double according to their relative weight in whatever
system was being used. For example, in the United States, 1 or 2 credits was labelled
a half module while three or four credits was categorized as one module. The credit
systems did not vary as much within countries, so this system worked well as a simple
way to weight courses by their credits.
