utm290H5 Launching your Research: Across the Atlantic and Back Application

The Course

UTM290 Launching your Research: Across the Atlantic and Back is open to currently enrolled and past completers of a utmONE Scholars seminar (UTM191H5, UTM192H5, UTM193H5, UTM195H5, UTM196H5, and UTM197H5) 

Application Deadline Extended to March 24 (2019) 

This 200-level utmONE Scholars seminar offers an engaging and interactive way to build upon the research skills developed in a first-year utmONE Scholars seminar. You will gain hands-on experience collecting and analyzing data, while also earning a 0.5 credit that counts toward your distribution requirements. There is also an exciting opportunity to participate in an international field-study experience during the February reading week.

The course includes an optional field-study experience to sites of historical and ecological interest in the Dominican Republic. The international field-study experience will occur during the 2019 February Reading Week. There will be an additional fee for this experience. The fee includes flight, room and board, required in-country travel expenses, and insurance. We estimate this cost to range from about $2,500-$3,000 (cost will be finalized by September). Please note, bursaries exist to help alleviate some of the overall expenses.  

*As an integral learning experience, this field-study trip is highly recommended.
