Academic Year Student Projects
Academic year student projects may or may not be associated with faculty research projects, but even if they are entirely the student's work and may not have the potential for new publishable results, they are still valuable experiences. Such work helps students learn what doing research is like and gives them experience in working independently. Any sort of research or research-like experience makes a student a more attractive candidate for graduate school or other opportunities and gives the faculty supervisor raw material from which to fashion a helpful letter of recommendation. The possible options for academic year projects are:
- Mentored Advanced Projects (MAPs, 499)
- Independent Projects (397)
- Internships (300)
- Informal not-for-credit projects
The details of the credit-granting projects can be found in the College's catalog and web pages.
