The Andrew W. Mellon Scholars Program in the Arts and Humanities is a collaborative research program that cultivates critical thinkers who understand how to plan, develop, and undertake a significant project of research or creative production. The program is interdisciplinary and encourages collaboration between disciplines, as well as the creative and technological dissemination of scholarly work.
The program begins with a two-semester interdisciplinary seminar in the sophomore year. Mellon Scholars who continue to the junior year work with a faculty mentor to develop and intellectually coherent course of study and complete a junior project. Senior Mellon Scholars work with a faculty mentor to produce a senior thesis.
The Mellon Scholars Program stresses the importance of the digital humanities and original, student-centered work.
