Research Experiences

Our students conduct research in a wide array of research settings from field and forest to coast and sea. Hands-on learning and close collaboration with faculty mentors are a hallmark of our environmental programs. Undergraduate research experiences allow you to customize your education and provide the practical experience may employers and graduate schools look for among their applicant pools.
