St. Mary's Projects
Check out this past year's projects: 2014 SMPs
A St. Mary's Project may be a research project or a creative expression in the arts. It may include collaborative work and build upon components of internships, study-abroad programs, and other experiential formats, as well as reflect traditional research skills. Most students will enroll for the St. Mary's Project in the senior year, but some projects may involve junior-year experiences.
A St. Mary's Project is completed within the major; however, a project may be conducted within a single discipline or across disciplines, including established cross-disciplinary minors. The initiation of the project and its completion are the responsibility of the student. Projects must be approved by the department or departments in which the student is majoring.
There are guidelines in the following areas:
- Planning for the Project
- Public Presentation
