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 and Innovation 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.
Encouraging Young Researchers
Duquesne students are encouraged to reach out to the community and complement their formal education by creating and sharing new knowledge for the greater good.
The Citizen Science Lab, a joint venture between Duquesne University and Urban Innovation 21, offers laboratory experiences in life sciences to high school students who otherwise might not experience hands-on science. Duquesne graduate students provide instruction and experiences.
Duquesne also works with Project SEED, which encourages promising high school students to continue in science education.
