Summer Opportunities

Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, Creativity, and Dialogue

There are many opportunities for students to engage in Research, Scholarship, Creativity, and Dialogue (RSCD) opportunities in the summer. Student-faculty collaborations involve in-depth, faculty-sponsored inquiry projects in any discipline. Summer projects may take different forms:

  • research assistantship [e.g. working in a faculty member's lab or on a faculty-driven research project]
  • independently-conceived student project with a faculty member as a mentor
  • equal partnership between a faculty member and a student

In summer 2019, Gustavus had 44 students working with 21 faculty members on summer research and creative projects. Disciplines represented include: Biology, Chemistry, Communication Studies, Computer Science, Environmental Studies, Geography, Geology, Health & Exercise Science, Mathematics, Physics, Psychological Science, and Theatre.
