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