Research and Curriculum

Bowdoin's academic program challenges students to stretch their understanding of today's most pressing issues, to try new experiences, and begin their lives as global citizens. The interdisciplinary focus of the curriculum often connects disciplines and ideas in surprising ways, and includes more than 70 designated International Perspectives courses. Bowdoin faculty members are internationally recognized scholars and artists who publish and contribute at the top of their fields, present at conferences, and collaborate with peers at leading research institutions around the world. They actively include undergraduates in their work, include them in professional conferences, and mentor students' research, field work and internships.
