One of the most valuable aspects of a science education at Brandeis University is the opportunity to carry out cutting-edge research in the areas of their majors. Undergraduate students carry out research working one-on-one with faculty and graduate students. Many students write honors theses based on their work in the lab.
They are also frequently co-authors of important scientific publications as well. Since 2003, Brandeis undergraduates have been co-authors on more than 130 peer-reviewed research publications.
The motivated undergraduate student can begin working in a lab as early as their first semester, developing skills that lead up to a substantial senior honors thesis.
