Among the many academic experiences offered at Penn State Schuylkill is the opportunity to collaborate with a Penn State faculty member on a real research project.
Working one-on-one with a faculty member, or as part of a supervised research team, students are able to investigate important issues related to their academic interests.
These projects are sometimes part of a course, for which students earn academic credits, or a student can serve as a wage assistant during the regular semester or summer.
At the end of each semester, students participate in the Undergraduate Poster Conference, a research exhibition where they present the results of their work.
As a result of their research collaborations with faculty, students gain valuable experience to include in their resumes or graduate school applications, make professional contacts, and have even earned co-authorship on scholarly publications and conference presentations.
