Learning through research

Learning happens when you ask questions. Many Wheaton students tackle tough questions, exploring ideas for which there is no answer, through independent research projects in the arts and sciences, social sciences and humanities.

With the advice and support of faculty members, students produce new knowledge through research project that typically take a year or more to complete. They earn credit along the way and, sometimes, the students also gain a publication credit or an invitation to present their work at a scholarly conference.

A group of Wheaton students this spring received invitations to explain their research at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research, which was held at the University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond.
