Office of Student Scholarly Activities
Each of the Pathways features two components:
1) a structured curriculum with a core set of competencies delivered through monthly workshops, or core sessions; and
2) flexible, experiential noncore enrichment activities guided by a faculty advisor and an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) designed to apply core concepts in a variety of settings.
By the end of the Third Year, all students complete and present a scholarly project.
