Research/Independent Study

Our students work alongside professors who are passionate about enhancing the quality of life of our regional ecosystems. Research can vary from identifying local invasive species of plant life at Letchworth State Park to an expedition of the woods on-campus. Our students can earn a stipend for their time conducting research or taking part in an independent study – both of which students can begin pursuing as early as their first-year in the program.
