Opportunities for Research
There are several ways to get involved in research. Talk with a professor whose research you find interesting and ask if he/she has a place for you in their research program. You could work in their labs as an occasional volunteer, or more intensively for independent study course credit, or in the Summer Research Associate Program. Some students gain research experience as interns/research assistants at other institutions (usually during the summer). Underclassmen should get involved as soon as they can – don't be shy! Our faculty eagerly welcome students interested in research into our research programs. Space in any professor's lab is limited and entry into the more popular labs can be competitive. Juniors should begin to find a professor with whom they want to conduct their Senior Capstone research.
Journal Articles and Conference Presentations with BSC Student Authors/Coauthors
Science is a process of creating and verifying new knowledge for humanity. Thus, sharing your scientific findings with the rest of the world is a vital step in the scientific process. While all our students do this through the BSC Senior Capstone Conference, many have also teamed up with their research advisors to present their research findings at scientific conferences or to publish in scientific research journals.
