Research at Willamette

The classroom isn’t the only place where Willamette students receive an outstanding undergraduate or graduate education.

Through internships, fieldwork and lab projects, our students pursue professional and scholarly research to translate knowledge into action.

Some go on to publish in reputed journals, while others share their findings at regional and national conferences. Some work independently, and others assist professors through summer and year-round programs.

From the sciences to the humanities, our students work with staff and faculty to discover numerous ways to make meaningful contributions to the world.
