Just this. Those research experiences help Wooster students develop abilities prized by employers and graduate schools alike: independent judgment, creativity, project-management and time-management skills, self confidence, and strong written and oral communication skills.
Students can begin working with faculty on research in their first year at Wooster. The Applied Mathematics Research Experience, Sophomore Research Program, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute Summer Research Scholars program provide opportunities for hundreds of students every year.
Then in senior year, each student works one-on-one with a faculty mentor to conceive, plan, and complete a significant piece of original research, scholarship, or creative expression, in a capstone project called Independent Study.
Maybe that’s why for the past decade, when U.S. News & World Report asked college presidents and deans to name schools with outstanding undergraduate research opportunities and senior capstone programs, only two schools made both lists all 10 years: Princeton and Wooster.
