Undergraduate research at Endicott takes several forms. The culminating activity for all seniors is the creation of an original thesis project that involves in-depth study and discovery research in an area of interest within the major. Topics that emerge during the senior internship experience often become the basis for the thesis projects, which can range from the creation of original artistic works to the study of a problem within the social sciences. During a thesis conference held prior to graduation, seniors share their projects with the entire Endicott community.
Select students also have the opportunity to partner with Endicott faculty mentors on collaborative research projects through specially designed independent study courses across all disciplines. Students might work with faculty who have affiliations at institutions such as Massachusetts General Hospital or Harvard Medical School. Together with faculty, students often have the opportunity to showcase their work through publications or presentations both on campus and at local and national conferences.
