Work side-by-side with faculty
Concordia faculty members are nationally known experts who regularly involve students in research activities usually reserved for graduate students at large universities — planning projects, developing theories, and serving as co-authors of scholarly works.
In the process, faculty get to know their students well enough to write exceptional recommendations for graduate school or a job. That’s a big reason why, for example, 88 percent of Concordia graduates applying to medical school are accepted.
Recently, Concordia students have worked on a vaccine against hookworm, studied contemporary art in South Korea and built a miniature Modular Neutron Array Detector on campus.
Gain recognition by sharing your results
Concordia students have many opportunities to present their scholarly work to the campus community and beyond.
Each spring, students demonstrate the results of independent work or faculty-guided projects at the college’s Celebration of Student Scholarship. Off campus, students present at national conferences such as the Council on Undergraduate Research's Posters on the Hill and the Association for Psychological Science’s annual convention.
