For students interested in conducting research over the summer, consider the following programs. In addition, some of the year-long Bass Connections project teams have a summer component.
Data+ is a ten-week summer research experience for undergraduates interested in exploring new data-driven approaches to interdisciplinary challenges. They learn how to marshal, analyze and visualize data, while gaining broad exposure to the field of data science.
Story+ is a six-week summer research experience for undergraduates and graduate mentors interested in bringing academic research to life through dynamic storytelling. Final projects may take the form of writing, websites, exhibits, short films or other genres, depending on the project’s goals.
Open Design+ is a six-week summer research experience for undergraduates interested in using design thinking to solve real-world problems. Working in small teams, students learn to define problem areas, empathize with stakeholders, create and iterate on prototypes, communicate across audiences and assess the ethical implications of how and what they design.
Global Health Student Research Training
The Student Research Training Program is an intensive experiential learning program that engages second- and third-year undergraduates in the development, implementation and assessment of a community-based global health project.
Summer Neuroscience Program
This eight-week summer program enables undergraduates to jumpstart their Graduation with Distinction senior theses by working one-on-one with faculty mentors. The full program is open to rising juniors and seniors who are declared Neuroscience majors.
