SOM BSHS Selective

General Information

Students are required to satisfactorily complete a 3-week course designated as a Basic Science and Humanities selective. These selectives include original research, a scholarly project, or an immersion experience which emphasize in-depth study of one or more basic science, social science, or humanities topics. Any of these must result in a graded written project. All BSHS courses are graded on a Satisfactory/Fail basis, and are offered throughout the year.
