You will gain analytical, critical thinking and writing skills required to succeed in whatever career you choose.

Our students participate in at least one immersive research experience either on or off-campus.

You will have access to paid internships at organizations such as Belden, the Richmond Sanitary District, the Environmental Protection Agency and the Indianapolis Museum of Art.

Recent graduates have gone on to Ph.D. programs at universities such as Harvard, Duke, Purdue, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Tennessee and Utah. Several of them were awarded prestigious National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowships.
