Student Research & Internships

Hands-on experience is key to advancement in graduate studies as well as careers in the sciences. That’s why Cedar Crest College requires students in the chemistry and physical sciences department to conduct research or complete a laboratory internship in order to fulfill their degree requirements. During your years here, you will regularly work side-by-side with experienced faculty members and industry professionals, utilizing the latest equipment and technology to perform a variety of types of scientific research.
