For 10 weeks this summer, 60 Holy Cross students worked under the direction of faculty members in the College’s rigorous science research program.
Students in the highly-selective program conducted research in mathematics and computer science, physics, chemistry, biology, psychology, sociology and anthropology, and economics.
In the final week of the program, three students, along with their professors, opened the doors to their labs and shared their progress and experiences.
“We often say that Holy Cross really excels because of its small class sizes, and I think the research program epitomizes that approach,” says Daniel Bitran, associate professor of psychology and science coordinator. “We offer students meaningful experience in research that is primary — it’s not canned, it hasn’t been done before, and it’s often cutting edge.”
