Research and Internships
Research is crucial to mathematics and all the sciences. At Hamilton it is also one of the keys to the liberal arts curriculum. It begins with Hamilton's small, interactive classes and continues through the Senior Program. The Mathematics Department also has a number of students return to campus each summer for professional research. Conducting research, either through collaboration with a faculty member or independently, is the means by which students integrate and apply what they have learned in the classroom.
Each summer, Hamilton and the Mathematics Department offer exciting opportunities for undergraduates to conduct hands-on collaborative research in math, computer science and other fields. The Summer Science Collaborative Research Program provides grants for dozens of students to work with faculty members on a variety of cutting-edge projects. Many of these projects lead to scholarly papers and presentations co-authored by students.
