Undergraduate Research at Bowdoin

With over 190 Bowdoin students engaging in faculty-mentored research each year, Bowdoin is one of the most active research institutions among liberal arts colleges today. Students find that immersing themselves in a particular research question gives them a chance to personalize their undergraduate experience and often serves a springboard for independent study and honors projects. Fellowships also lead to students co-authoring papers with their faculty mentor or presenting their findings at professional meetings, experiences that are invaluable for those students considering graduate study. However your interests evolve, you will  find that you draw upon the knowledge, skills, and experiences gained through these enhanced learning opportunities for years to come.
