Scholarly Concentration Programs
A student is not required to do a scholarly concentration to graduate; however, we encourage all students to consider participation in this novel, and we hope fulfilling experience, at UNC. A student choosing a scholarly concentration is making a commitment to learning a discipline, and doing a deeper dive into a chosen area, than might be experienced in the curriculum otherwise. As such, students will have the option to include their participation in a scholarly concentration as one of their three noteworthy characteristics on their MSPE. Scholarly concentrations are an excellent way to distinguish oneself from a career standpoint, for example, work closely with a mentor expert in the chosen discipline, develop meaningful programs, perhaps contribute to the literature, and maybe even follow this pathway into a future career. At a practical level, students participating in scholarly concentrations will have ample material to discuss during residency interviews.
