At Dickinson, students have the opportunity to work with their professors on research, to conduct research on their own and to engage in senior projects and other independent opportunities to conduct research.  The Students as Scholars pages collect and communicate these scholarly endeavors, whether in the form of presentations, artistic performances or publications.   

Research is a vital component of Dickinson's curriculum.  We offer students opportunities for research and artistic performance in virtually all fields.

"It was a great chance to work with a professor closely and learn the ins and outs of academic publishing and editing. I am strongly considering a career in publishing or as an editor, and I thought this would be a fantastic way to begin."

Colin Myles Tripp '14 on working with Assistant Professor David Ball on Ball's book, False Starts

This site contains links to several activities where students have the opportunity to showcase their research activity and its outcomes.  The work presented represents activity from all academic departments.  See public Research Presentations and Research Publications for details about conferences, symposia, journal articles and books where student research has appeared.

The Funded Research link shows details of individual student projects.  Each entry describes the project, the outcomes, and a statement from the student about the research experience.
