The BU Directed Reading Program (DRP) is a program that pairs undergraduate students with graduate student mentors to work together on an independent reading project in mathematics, applied mathematics, or statistics.

Our goal is to engage undergraduates who are curious and motivated to learn more about mathematics beyond what they may find in their coursework, in a way where their interests drive their learning experience. We hope the DRP will serve as a bridge between undergraduate students and graduate students and add to a sense of community in the department.

The deadline to apply for the Fall 2023 DRP has now passed, but if you are interested in participating in the future and would like to be updated about the Spring 2024 DRP, please fill out this interest form. You can also take a look at this slide-show from our Fall 2023 informational meeting.
