Students will participate in a seminar, guided research, speakers series, and field trips. They will receive a $1000 scholarship in the fall and funding for research in the spring.
Fall: Multidisciplinary Seminar
Spring: Guided Research
In the spring, students will enroll in a three-credit independent study. Working closely with a faculty member, each student will develop a research paper on an issue of particular interest to the student. Such issues will generally have emerged in seminar discussion during the first semester. Students will meet periodically to share the results of their research with fellow students and faculty. There will be a year-end celebration with poster presentations.
