As part of the University's mission, students are encouraged to take advantage of the University's excellent faculty-student ratio and conducive research environment to learn through true hands-on opportunities. For Duquesne students, these research opportunities have paid off in top national honors such as Fulbright, Goldwater and Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation scholarships.
Most student research starts with a professor and a particular interest in a project, but the Office of Research staff can provide additional guidance, especially for those heading into national and international competitions and conferences. See how students learn from and inspire others in each of Duquesne's schools.
Undergraduate students are encouraged to conduct scholarship and research, make presentations and posters, and attend and present at professional conferences as well as the annual Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium held each spring. Learn more about undergraduate research at Duquesne.
Nearly every graduate student at Duquesne is intimately involved in research as part of their training. In addition to benefitting from the opportunities available within a distinguished University that has achieved the Carnegie high research university rating, graduate students may attend national conferences with their faculty advisors and present their work at the Graduate Student Research Symposium held each fall.
