A top priority of the Biology Department at Sewanee is getting students involved in research. We want you to take advantage of the many research opportunities here and find your place as a scientist! Students can get involved at any stage - first years to seniors! You can even earn course credit doing research!

These types of hands-on research experiences set Sewanee students ahead for graduate school, professional programs and employment opportunities after graduation.

How To Get Involved

Getting involved in research is easy at Sewanee! 

Simply talk to your professor after class or stop by their office, send them a quick email about your interests, come to our ScienceFriday events and lab-open-house, explore internships and positions posted on Handshake, talk with classmates at Scholarship Sewanee about their research and how they got involved… Let’s get you doing some science!
