Director of Undergraduate Studies's Message


September 2018

Dear MES Concentrators,

Welcome back to a new school year! I had the pleasure to get to know some of you last year (my first at Brown) and am now thrilled to serve you all as Director of Undergraduate Studies.

We have a number of new and exciting MES and X-listed courses for Fall 2018, as well as fantastic events, including our Iran Today Lecture Series. Graduating concentrators will be presenting their Capstone and Senior Thesis research in December and April—for those not graduating this year, remember that the Undergraduate Paper Series is a wonderful way to share your work and prepare for senior-year presentations. As you register for classes, consider studying abroad, and think ahead to next semester (and beyond), keep in mind the concentration requirements and please reach out if you have questions!
