Student Research Opportunities

Saint Mary’s offers a vibrant and stimulating intellectual community, with an emphasis on student research. Our compact campus and small class sizes provide unprecedented access to professors, complemented by lab spaces and research facilities that are state-of-the-art. This combination leads to exceptional learning and growth opportunities.

Undergrad students may find themselves working as a paid research assistant, traveling the world for a study abroad program, taking part in field trips, presenting at a conference or even pursuing their own original research — all during their undergrad years.

Saint Mary’s is also an excellent place to pursue graduate study, with 23 diverse PhD and Masters programs to choose from. Our grad students benefit from close collaboration with award-winning faculty members who are renowned experts and prolific researchers.
