Overview

Research opportunities

You spend a lot of time working with professors on innovative research in their fields. We view teaching and research with students as a single unified activity. You might spend your summers working with faculty through the Keck Foundation program or a fellowship funded by the National Science Foundation or the National Institutes of Health.  The Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology program is offered at Connecticut College.

Many students co-author articles in scientific journals with professors and present their work at major research seminars in the United States and abroad. Some go overseas to continue their research, participating in an ongoing collaboration with scientists at the University of Bologna.

Study abroad

Study abroad for a semester or participate in one of the College's own Study Away Teach Away (SATA) programs. Through SATA, you travel to destinations like South Africa or Italy and take classes with a Connecticut College professor and faculty at local universities.
