Undergraduate Research in Biology

We strongly encourage students to get involved in research during the summer, academic year, or both. For many students, research is one of the most intellectually rewarding experiences at Barnard. When unpaid research is conducted during the academic year, students can receive academic credit for working in a laboratory at Barnard or anywhere else in New York City. Research can be conducted during any (or all) semesters of the major, and during the summer.
