The Dean’s Scholars Program provides an intensive research opportunity for undergraduate students who want to distinguish themselves both professionally and academically. Students will develop their research and communication skills as they construct a research project and work alongside a faculty mentor.
The program is a two-year commitment and scholars will be required to take two 3-credit courses and a 1-credit seminar throughout the duration of the program. By the end of the program, students will have a completed research project and will have the opportunity to present their academic research at conferences and submit their final paper to peer-reviewed journals.
Please see below for a semester by semester breakdown of the requirements for the program. For more information or if you have any questions, please contact Dr. Alexander Cromwell, Associate Director of the Dean’s Scholars Program, at [email protected].
