Independent Study

Wooster’s top-ranked Independent Study (I.S.) program

Every Wooster senior works one-on-one with a faculty mentor for one year to conceive, organize, and complete a significant piece of original research, scholarship, or creative expression. Known to generations simply as I.S., this project is the centerpiece of Wooster’s commitment to mentored research and a badge of distinction for all our graduates as they head into the world of work.
