Student Research

Question. Create. Connect.

Gustavus faculty collaborate with students on research and creative projects in the summer and throughout the school year. Research takes many forms across the disciplines. Gustavus students conduct research and creative inquiry in classrooms, laboratories, studios, theatres, and the community. They carry out field research, such as collecting data on fish populations on the open seas, excavating Roman villas, measuring glacial melt in the Andes, and interviewing local farmers. 

Student research is supported both by external grants and through College programs like the First Year Research Experience (FYRE), Presidential Faculty-Student Collaboration Grants, and Summer Research Fellowships. The College also supports Gustavus students presenting their research off-campus with funding for travel expenses.
