CSP

Why first-year students want to enroll in CSP

CSP is an alternative to standard first year science, suitable for students who have broad scientific interests and want to explore the sciences in a community of like-minded students. In addition to science lecture courses limited to CSP students, CSP includes a workshop course with 28 students per section. This course enables CSP students to work in small groups that facilitate development of friendships and supportive academic learning groups.
