As America’s first research university, we have been tackling difficult questions and finding answers since 1876.
Every day, our faculty and students work side by side in a tireless pursuit of discovery, continuing our founding mission to bring knowledge to the world. Whether you study engineering, chemistry, music, anthropology, or all of the above, every student here—no matter his or her major—is an investigator.
You can find research in whatever field you want because everyone here is doing some sort of research, and you can help out.
