Barnard Student Programs


The Student Research component of the Hughes Science Pipeline Project continues a series of activities that encourage student participation in science research activities throughout their college careers: a poster session of student research at open houses for admitted students; science classes for HEOP students during the summer before they matriculate; the Research Apprenticeship Seminar for first-year students (with funding for off-campus summer research internships); a Biology Journal Club that introduces first-year students to the scientific literature; the Research Methods Seminar for sophomores enrolled in mid-level science laboratory courses; on-campus research internships for sophomores, juniors, and seniors;  an annual Student Research Symposium; science career panels; an annual lecture by a distinguished woman scientist; and a listing of off-campus internship opportunities on the program’s web page.
