Research Opportunity Program (ROP)

Course Description

This program allows students to earn credits by participating in a faculty member's research project. The student WILL NOT be paid for participation. There is no final exam in this course; however, for most courses, students are expected to keep a journal and meet regularly with their supervisor and be evaluated in other ways deemed suitable by their supervisor. A general time commitment of 8 to 10 hours per week is required.

The program description and application portal for Summer 2018 and Fall/Winter 2018-19 ROP Projects will be available February 14, 2018.
