Studying at Barnard means access to graduate-level research opportunities that few undergraduate liberal arts colleges provide. Students engage in mentored research in STEM fields, social sciences, arts, and humanities. In this video, we hear from Barnard faculty and students collaborating both on campus and in the field.

Prof. Severin Fowles and his team conduct archaeological research in the Northern Rio Grande. Prof. Reshmi Mukherjee and her astrophysics students execute high-energy gamma ray studies at the VERITAS Observatory in the Coronado National Forest. And Prof. Tovah Klein performs unparalleled early childhood development research with her student researchers at the living laboratory that is the Barnard Center for Toddler Development.

Opportunities like these, along with one-on-one faculty/student research partnerships and programs such as Barnard’s Summer Research Institute, whose goal is to provide funding for every student who finds a faculty research mentor, are part of what makes Barnard a unique incubator for leading scholars and researchers.
