Undergraduate Research

Students and parents alike know that Carleton offers a top-notch academic experience, but what they will also discover is that Carleton offers many opportunities for undergraduate students to conduct their own research. Undergraduate research provides students opportunities to work with a professor in their field and gain experience with the research process.
