Interdisciplinary Concentration

Research Opportunities

Conducting research, typically with the assistance of a faculty member, is a key to helping you integrate what you have learned in the classroom. Research can take many forms, depending on your academic interests: laboratory work, computer-assisted research, traditional scholarship, field work in settings ranging from Antarctica to archaeological digs to urban neighborhoods.

In addition to the many research opportunities Hamilton provides during the school year, the College offers a range of summer research grants to students for work on campus. Other students pursue summer internships off campus. Internships are a form of work-related experience highly valued by employers, and Hamilton's Career Center provides guidance and assistance to students seeking internships.
