Student Research Opportunities

Through experiences that occur in and out of the classroom, the Department strives to provide educational and research experiences that are rich with opportunities and challenges and that foster an understanding of the scientific method of learning. Students benefit from small class sizes and courses that take advantage of natural and historical sites throughout the city. Students are also encouraged to gain research experience by working in a faculty member’s lab, and students commonly participate in Baruch’s Creative Inquiry Day to showcase their research.
