Black Rock Scholars

Motivated students who demonstrate the commitment and aptitude to work independently at an advanced level may develop a project in partnership with a faculty advisor. An independent study is taken as a sixth course, either for a semester or year long, and requires department and committee approval.

Students who are interested in focusing on sustainability, diversity and inclusion, community service and philanthropy, sense of place, and/or global awareness can complete a project with a Black Rock Concentration. 

Students must complete a final project or paper as well as present their conclusions at A.R.I.S.E. (Advanced Research and Independent Exhibition) in the spring.
