A Sewanee professor’s newly published book explores the sustainability of two Atlantic whale-hunting cultures while his collaborative research with students yields significant findings and a tissue-for-internships arrangement with other universities.
Big questions are out there. At Sewanee, we'll work together to find the answers.
Sewanee is a recognized leader in undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative work across all academic programs. Faculty members integrate original research and scholarship into the classroom and encourage their students to join them in extensive exploration of original work during the academic year and in the summer. In the process, students enhance their knowledge, hone their skills, and improve their postgraduate prospects.
Sewanee students conduct research with professors on a wide variety of projects. Recent projects include:
- How platinum complexes form aggregates in solution
- A new humanities research model for archival work
- The effects of methamphetamine exposure in early adolescence
- Photography and self-esteem with Haitian children
- Eating disorders and body image
- Recreating an obscure medieval play
What's more, as part of the Sewanee Pledge, Sewanee students are guaranteed funding for a summer research fellowship with a Sewanee professor or an approved program at another university.
