A diverse and evolving collection of collaborations between Sewanee and Yale combines the unique strengths of these two institutions, offering exceptional opportunities for students, faculty, and community partners.


Summer Internships

This summer internship offers Sewanee undergraduates an eight-week mentored research experience under the auspices of the Yale Child Study Center at the Yale School of Medicine. Based on their interests and goals, students are matched with faculty research mentors in labs affiliated with the Yale Child Study Center, Yale's Departments of Psychology and Psychiatry, and more!

Summer + Semester Directed Research

An opportunity to spend a summer and the following semester at Yale pursuing one or more research projects, participating in weekly research meetings, and taking courses offered by the Child Study Center. Students are mentored by both Sewanee and Yale faculty, who assist the student in developing a plan of study and research.
