Undergraduate Research

Student research is thriving at Albright College. We encourage students in every concentration to take part in a variety of research opportunities, guided by faculty mentors. Do your interests lie in the social sciences, the humanities and the arts, or the natural sciences? You can engage in exciting research and creative activity in any of these areas.

Why Research?
By delving deeper into a particular area, you can:

  • discover the process of how knowledge is acquired in your field
  • apply classroom learning in real-life contexts
  • develop close working relationships with faculty members
  • gain insight into making valuable contributions to a field of scholarly study

How to Get Involved
We make it easy for you to get involved in research.

  • ACRE (Albright Creative Research Experience)
    Apply to become part of a student-faculty team that works together on research during the summer session or interim January term. Accepted participants receive a stipend and free room and board during the session. You might even present your research at a regional or national professional conference!

  • Honors Program
    Honors Program students complete a senior honors project involving some type of research. In addition to writing a thesis, you present your research to the Albright College community. Your project may possibly be combined with an independent study project, study abroad or Albright Creative Research Experience (ACRE) grant.

  • Independent Study
    Independent study allows you to investigate an issue of personal interest. You identify the topic or issue, coordinate the project with a faculty member and, if approved, study independently with faculty oversight.

  • Research-based Courses and Projects
    You will find opportunities to conduct research in a variety of courses at Albright College. Your faculty advisor and department chair will help you identify the possibilities for research in courses that interest you.

    For more information, please contact Kimberly Justeson, Director of Experiential Learning, at kjusteson@albright.edu or 610-921-7630.
