Any Research, Any Year
Whether you’re just entering college or you're a Ph.D. candidate, the hallmark of the Cornell CALS education is the opportunity to work with a mentor who is not only an expert in your field, but may have actually established that field as well.
Building upon the university's founding principle of "any person, any study," CALS graduate degree candidates work with world-renown faculty and staff in almost 30 fields of study, while our undergraduates experience the research process through hundreds of opportunities, including the Research Honors Program.
From the classroom to the lab to the field, discover the reach of our student research.
At Cornell CALS, we believe that undergraduates can undertake important, paradigm-shifting research and that making meaningful contributions to your field should not be limited by class year. Check out a selection of recently published--you read that right, published--and presented research from undergraduates in the Department of Communication.
