The best thing to do is to do some research on programs, projects, or areas in which you might be interested, then meet with a faculty member to talk about it. The best people to talk to here are Alex Knodell (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Joan Branham (JBRANHAM@providence.edu). Also, there will always be projects and opportunities that are not posted online and we can help you find them!
