Undergraduate Research

Head into the stacks at the library. Put on your protective eyewear and step into the lab. In whatever direction you turn, a world of discovery opens up to you. Our undergraduates have many options to explore during the academic year, on breaks and over the summer. Learn about these exciting opportunities through the Office of Undergraduate Research. The capstone of your four years of study will be your senior thesis, which will give you a unique opportunity to pursue original research and scholarship in a field of your choosing.

Graduate Research

With outstanding programs across the fields of study, Princeton has 42 degree-granting departments and programs for graduate students. The University also offers a growing number of interdepartmental programs and offerings that allow students to work across disciplinary boundaries while still continuing to receive advanced training and a degree in the home department. Our graduate students work among and with our world-class faculty, researching and publishing alongside their advisers and mentors. The Graduate School holds all graduate students to the highest standard of academic integrity. The University offers many means of support, including a new sixth-year funding program for grad students in the humanities and social sciences that is part of a broader commitment to provide funding for all Ph.D. students.
