Student-Faculty Research

Throughout the academic year and summer at St. Thomas, hundreds of undergraduate students go beyond the classroom to participate in research with a faculty mentor. And it’s not just students in the STEM sciences; students in English, History, Political Science, Social Work, Psychology, and more all get involved. The majority of these students receive funding to carry out their research as paid research assistants or undergraduate research grant recipients. If you’re interested in finding out how to make research part of your academic career at St. Thomas, you can learn more from our Grants and Research Office here
