Research - Department of Biological Sciences
Because of our smaller student population, we offer many opportunities to do primary investigative research as early as your first year, research that leads to publication and presentations at national meetings. You won’t need to compete with dozens of other students to snag a single research position or wait until you’re in a graduate program. We regularly accommodate every academically strong student with opportunities to do investigative laboratory research. We also offer undergraduate fellowships for summer research.
