Program Planning Meeting
If you were unable to attend a program planning meeting, or are just curious about the major, please enjoy this recording of our April 2022 program planning session. If you are looking for specific information, we have included timestamps below the video to help you find what you need.
At program planning meetings, we ask faculty to speak briefly about their research interests and courses, and try to provide a brief overview of what you can expect from the major. As always, we encourage students to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, big or small!
