Admission to the Science Conversation

All rising sophomores are invited to apply for admission to the Science Conversation, regardless of major or intended major. We will strive for the broadest possible mix of backgrounds and interests. Applications will be read by faculty members of the program’s steering committee, and the cohort of 24 students for each academic year will be notified of their acceptance during the period of web registration.

Admission to the program will be based on the quality of the application essay. Applicants will be evaluated on their potential to benefit from and contribute to:

  • a seminar style, discussion-based learning environment
  • a primary texts approach
  • an interdisciplinary perspective
