Spotlight on Research

Research in The College of Arts and Sciences covers a spectrum of activities as vast as the Universe.  Faculty explore the arts, literatures, languages, cultures, thought, beliefs, and the politics of ancient civilizations to modern times. They listen for the symphony of signals produced by black holes and dark matter; explore rainforests, glaciers, and oceans; and expand our fundamental understanding of cells, molecules, atoms, quantum mechanics, and human behavior.

Explore with us the many opportunities for multidisciplinary, collaborative research on campus, in the surrounding community, and across the globe.
