The DRP website is now hosted by Math Emory. Please follow the link for current information.

**What is the DRP?** The directed reading program (DRP) pairs motivated undergraduates with graduate students to learn a topic together. Please see below for a list of sample and past courses and their descriptions. Undergraduates with questions about the program or suggestions for future topics should email me, as should graduate students interested in mentoring.

Program description and sample topics

**How to apply**: Interested undergraduates will fill out a short application form. When applying, you will propose a topic you would like to study; see the sample topics above for inspiration, but do not feel limited by them! Applicants will be notified of a decision shortly thereafter and registered in advance of the add/drop/swap deadline.

**Credit and expectations**: Course credit will be offered to participating undergraduates, in the form of a 1-credit directed study course! The grading basis for this course is S/U. To obtain a satisfactory grade, participating students are expected to engage with the selected text independently, meet weekly with their mentor to discuss the material, and give a short presentation to their peers at the end of the semester.
