Student Research @ Acadia
Excellence in research training for undergraduates and graduate students is one of the cornerstones of an Acadia education. Acadia faculty members understand the value in training student researchers - after all, they are the researchers of tomorrow. Dr. Luke Harris, a former Honours student at Acadia, sums it up by saying "By the time I finished my summer research work with my supervisor, his passion and commitment to student success had inspired me to pursue a research career. I am so grateful to Acadia for providing me with such an amazing undergraduate research opportunity."
Students are valued members of Acadia's vibrant research community. As a result of the close interaction with their supervisors, Acadia students obtain an educational and training experience that places them in demand as they advance to positions that require high quality research skills. Acadia students work on developing their written and oral communication skills and often travel to scholarly conferences to present their work. There are many other value-added opportunities for senior undergraduate and Masters students through involvement in research workshops and reading groups, collaborative research opportunities with industry, and publishing activities.
There are many exciting opportunities for students to participate in research at Acadia - students may be involved in conducting research in the lab, in fieldwork away from campus, along with Library-based work.
