Support for Undergraduate Research

Carthage provides many opportunities for undergraduate students to participate in scholarly research. See the list below and visit the College’s Undergraduate Research page for further information.

The Vanguard

The Vanguard is Carthage’s very own student-written, -edited, and -published multi-disciplinary undergraduate research journal.

Senior Thesis

At Carthage, research is built into every student’s experience. Research serves as the foundation for entire academic courses. In addition, all prospective graduates must complete a senior thesis, which may take the form of a research project, an art exhibit, a music recital, a portfolio, a research paper or other project that pertains to the student’s area of study.

Summer Research

Carthage offers students paid summer research positions through the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE).

Research Internships

Carthage students have a strong track record of obtaining positions in competitive research laboratories across the country as paid summer interns.

Partnerships with National and International Experts

Carthage has institutional membership in the Council on Undergraduate Research, the preeminent national organization devoted to promoting high-quality undergraduate student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship.

Presentation Opportunities

Every spring, Carthage holds Celebration of Scholars, an event that highlights research and other original work by students and faculty. More than 150 Carthage students and faculty shared their work in 2016.
