Senior Independent Study (I.S.) is the most distinctive feature of a Wooster education. Each Wooster senior creates an original research project on a topic or idea they care about supported one-on-one by a faculty mentor. Wooster's I.S. program has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report, college presidents, and deans as one of the best senior capstone programs in the country. Senior I.S. provides the opportunity to accumulate more substantial and independent research experience than students may acquire at comparable schools. Wooster students do more than just collect facts about a specific topic; they evaluate information, analyze complex problems, propose solutions, and develop unique plans of action. The I.S. thesis is tangible proof of our students' skills and marks them as independent scholars who can communicate clearly and are ready to take on higher-level study or the beginning of a career.
