One of the hallmarks of our program is the collaborative research between faculty and students. There are numerous opporunties to get involved in research both during the academic year and over the summer. Students get initial research experience in each of the three research methods classes they are required to take as a major.
Students can participate in more in-depth research by conducting a senior thesis or woking directly with faculty members as part of their research team. In addition, there are a number of programs that provide montetary support for students conducting collaborative research with faculty over the summer months.
Students often present as co-authors at professional conferences, not to mention co-authoring publications. The fastest way to get involved is to contact one of us—we will happily describe our latest projects and ways you can get involved.
