Many undergraduate students get firsthand research experience by teaming up with faculty on their research studies. 

Our professors conduct leading-edge research in about as many fields as we have majors: archaeology, biology, education, English, geosciences, mathematics, psychology, and so many more. Student assistants welcome! Here are just two examples:

Paul Price: Geographic Information Systems

Paul Price works outdoors with a GIS unit

Geosciences major Paul Price worked with a faculty member, the local planning department, the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, and the state Department of Environmental Protection on a project to connect area bicycle trails.

“I gained an understanding of the operation of local government and how a real-world GIS project would be conducted from start to finish."



Sultan Magruder: Psychology

Psychology major Sultan Magruder is carrying out his own original research study, from start to finish, under the guidance of his mentor, Professor John Mills. Sultan is examining the individual differences in perception people have in situations of interdependency and how these differences influence competitive or cooperative interaction.

“Through this project, I'm becoming an expert in a particular psychology topic. One of the greatest parts about this endeavor is the collaboration with Professor Mills. His insight and support are inspiring.”
