Interdisciplinary experiences in research, teaching, and service are hallmarks of the Royster Society of Fellows. Royster Fellows engage with diverse, creative doctoral students and faculty from graduate programs across the campus and the world.
Royster Fellows in the final year of their program present a portion of their dissertation work to other members of the Royster Society through a series of Research Seminars. This interdisciplinary seminar series allows final year fellows to hone their presentation skills and offers all fellows the opportunity to hear perspectives from other disciplines.
Royster Fellows have the unique opportunity to teach an interdisciplinary undergraduate course at UNC-Chapel Hill. Each First Year Teaching Seminar team includes three Royster Fellows from different disciplines, and all actively create and teach the course together.
