Advising Booklet for New Students

Rice undergraduate students of all majors take a multitude of courses in our six departments as they complete their required and elective courses. In addition to our core curriculum, the Wiess School offers unique opportunities for undergraduates to engage in our cutting-edge research via hands-on laboratory experience, participation in department and institute activities, and student employment and internships in almost every facet of our School. We pride ourselves in our engagement of undergraduates in our activities, and welcome students of any major to become involved in our programs and to join the Wiess School family.
