An interdisciplinary experience is the hallmark of the Royster Society. Fellows engage across disciplines in their research, teaching, and service. They collaborate with doctoral students and faculty throughout the UNC-Chapel Hill campus and the world. These diverse connections provide a rich academic experience for Royster Fellows.
Royster Fellows in their final year present their dissertation research during Research Seminars. This interdisciplinary seminar series allows final year fellows to hone their presentation skills. It also offers all fellows the opportunity to gain perspectives from other disciplines.
Royster Fellows have the unique opportunity to teach a First Year Seminar. These courses are designed for incoming undergraduate students with no prior college experience. A team of three Royster Fellows from different disciplines selects the course topic. Together they create and teach the course.
