Eighty percent of Carleton Biology students participate in undergraduate research and there are abundant opportunities to do so. You’ll have the opportunity to work closely with influential scientists whose expertise spans all areas of biology.
Many student researchers are paid for such activities with funds supplied from research grants from either Carleton or external government and private agencies. Paid research opportunities are provided by (but not limited to) the following programs
- Dean’s summer research Internship
- NSERC Undergraduate Students Research Awards
- Federal Student Work Experience Program
All Honours students can develop an Honours Research Thesis working alongside a faculty adviser. You will graduate with valuable experience using some of the most up-to-date methodology, as well as a defined area of expertise.
