Research opportunities are available to chemistry students throughout the year, especially in the summer. Advanced courses provide opportunities for independent study and extensive research. January Term also provides an excellent vehicle for these activities, as independent projects can be set up on or off campus.

Students have participated in summer research programs at Luther and at institutions such as:

  • University of Washington
  • New York University
  • The Mayo Clinic
  • Northwestern University
  • Boston University
  • University of Iowa
  • University of Georgia
  • University of Minnesota
  • Montana State University
  • University of Massachusetts
  • Iowa State University

Through these programs, students can explore the specific facets of chemistry research that often help them direct their careers after graduation. These programs also provide students with valuable contacts in the scientific community.
