Research—Basic and Applied

Preprofessional preparation for a research career in the sciences is provided by all departments at Luther. The appropriate curriculum for preparing for graduate school is determined by the area of study the individual wishes to pursue, and thus intensive advising is provided by the faculty in each department. In addition to providing an extensive laboratory component within formal course offerings, science departments provide both undergraduate research opportunities during the academic year and in the summer, and internships at a variety of off-campus sites.
