Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research opportunities build on the experiences of undergraduates in their academic studies. Students can be linked to specialized projects or to work on subject-specific research under the direction of a faculty supervisor.

Community Engagement

Community Engagement allows students to take research areas within their studies out into the community to gain hands-on, community based experience. This can be done as special projects or under the supervision of a faculty member.

International Experiences

Internationalization is widely supported at Carleton. In addition to hosting a number of international focussed info sessions and speakers each year, the Discovery Centre through application to the Discovery Centre International Experience (DCIE) Bursary provides a financial contribution to undergraduate students who choose to complete a portion of their studies abroad.

Immersive Learning

Immersive Learning brings students together from various disciplines to address a common real-world issue from the perspective of their program areas. Through collaboration and investigative research Immersive Learning projects are an enriching way to investigate solutions.
