Diving into Research Courses

Diving into Research courses provides opportunities for students to work together in small groups on research projects in Math and Computer Science. A key objective of these courses is to show students that exposure to mathematics and computer science can provide them with the skills to solve problems in a wide range of fields. These courses are designed for, but not limited to, first year students.

A Diving into Research course differs from a first-year seminar in three ways:

  1. It is a year-long course where you will work on a research project with a small group of students.
  2. It is focused in either math or computer science.
  3. Credit (1.0) for the Diving into Research course is awarded after completion of two semesters of study.
