Not only will you have the opportunity to conduct advanced research as an undergraduate that most wouldn’t experience until graduate school, you’ll also have the chance to work alongside faculty in the process.

You could collaborate with a faculty team analyzing rock samples materials related to the oil and gas exploration in Canada, or spend your summer climbing volcanoes and glaciers in Iceland to collect lava samples and record their location and properties using GIS technology.

Great Lakes founders believed that the college should be a place where students actively engage the world. And our professors are living proof of this every single day. No matter where your interests lie—collecting data on ocean acidification in Australia, doing archaeological field work in Greece or conducting research on health and safety in Japan—you’ll have the opportunity to get involved, collaborate with your teachers and go out there and explore it.
