A diverse and developing collection of innovative collaborations between Sewanee and Yale combining the unique strengths these two institutions offers tremendous possibilities for students, faculty, and community partners both on the Mountain and in New Haven. Here you will find information on cross-institutional collaborations that not only range from courses to research projects to community engagement efforts, but that seek to unite these in deep and innovative ways. The partnership between these two institutions continues to grow and evolve and the opportunities are many.


Summer Internships

This paid summer internship offers Sewanee undergraduates an eight-week research experience in biomedical and related research under the auspices of the Yale Child Study Center at the Yale School of Medicine. Research takes place in laboratories at the Child Study Center; the Departments of Psychiatry, Pediatrics, and Diagnostic Radiology; the Haskins Laboratories. Students are exposed to research in a clinical setting and to the day-to-day workings of a behavioral neuroscience research laboratory.

Semester Directed Research

During their time at Yale, students will typically work on one or more research projects, participate in weekly research meetings, and participate in a research methods seminar and at least one upper-level seminar offered by the Child Study Center. Each student will be sponsored by a Sewanee faculty member, who will serve as advisor, set the requirements, and assist the student in developing a written plan of study.
