In collaboration with a faculty member, many of our majors undertake a research project in an area of their own interest. Research projects completed in recent years include:
- Analysis of archaeological artifacts from ancient Roman and Etruscan sites
- Analysis of the factors that influence the infrared spectra of pollen grains
- Organic reactions by microwave irradiation
There are opportunities for compensated student research. Saint Anselm College is currently receiving funding from the NH-INBRE grant, focusing on biomedical applications of research, through which summer research fellowships are available.
Additionally, the Father Michael Custer Summer Research Grant is awarded for a summer research position in collaboration with Chemistry faculty.
Many students have also obtained summer industry positions. Others have participated in academic summer research programs at major research institutions.
