Students will engage in mentored independent research for up to 4 semesters (12 credits) with a transdisciplinary research to practice group. This research practicum will be an opportunity for students to apply what they have learned in their core and elective coursework to real-life research settings. Specifically, students will join a research group for one to two years. Each student will either be affiliated with one of the ICI's research or practice activities or with the research team of a faculty member associated with the school. A student may also be paired with a faculty member engaged in relevant research or practice activities in another department at UMass Boston, a related institution of higher education affiliated with the school, or a related research center in another country.
Prerequisite(s): Department permission required.
