Research and Study Abroad

McNair Program study abroad trip to ArgentinaFor the last five years, the McNair Summer Research Opportunity Program (SROP) program has been providing faculty-supervised research experiences to expose McNair Scholars to independent academic research, while simultaneously instilling research skills and experience that makes them more competitive candidates on graduate applications and for future graduate-level work.

Through SROP, McNair participants spend a summer at DePaul or another institution, studying and conducting research with a faculty member in their chosen field. McNair participants also have the option of completing the Summer Research Service Experience (SRSE) program, which is coordinated by DePaul faculty and takes students abroad for a summer of research and service at a partner university. SRSE adds an international travel and service component to a student's summer research experience.
