ISMs are modules, which provide opportunities for students to obtain a personalized specialization on a specific topic. The student is given the freedom to work independently and to design the ISM in consultation with the faculty member to determine the assignments and research required for the module topic.
UROPs give students a chance to participate in a part of a Fellow’s own research project. UROPs aim to engage students in the processes of intellectual inquiry, problem solving and creative thinking, and enhance intellectual exchange and collaboration between undergraduates and faculty. Students conduct research under the supervision of a Fellow during the semester.
