Be connected.

During Minimester, seniors can design an independent study project to investigate a potential career or explore an academic interest. It's a great way to test drive a career before you enter the real world.

Here are a few projects we've done recently:

  • Study effects of UV radiation on marsh vegetation
  • Marine Biology at an aquarium in the Bahamas
  • Environmental Sustainability at a self-sustaining community
  • Fashion at Elle Accessories in New York City
  • Human Rights work in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia
  • Healthcare reform at the Center for Health Transformation
  • Cultural study of Kente weaving in Kumasi, Ghana
  • Tissue Engineering at a University Hospital in Seoul, Korea
  • Photography with a National Geographic Photographer
  • Public policy at the Brookings Institution in Washington, DC
  • Marketing at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida
  • Veterinary medicine at an animal park in Hong Kong
  • Elementary education at an orphanage in South America
