Hands-on Experience

Bucknell students often say some of their most meaningful academic experiences are the research projects they undertake with faculty mentors. Even first-year students are sometimes invited to take part in scholarly projects with their professors.

Not only do students learn about a particular research project, but they also learn how to use their analytical and critical thinking skills. As a result, they're better prepared to take that first job or go on to graduate school.

You could be among our many undergrads who work alongside doctors and health professionals at Geisinger Health System to solve the real-world medical challenges they face every day. Or your search for answers could mean traveling well beyond Lewisburg. From Alaska to Australia, our students crisscross the globe working with faculty mentors on various research projects.
