work side-by-side with faculty
concordia faculty members are nationally known experts who regularly involve students in research and scholarship activities often reserved for graduate students at large universities – developing research ideas, planning and carrying out projects, and serving as co-authors of scholarly works.
in the process, faculty get to know their students very well and are able to write exceptional letters of recommendation for graduate schools, nationally competitive fellowships and scholarships, and employment.
recently, students working with concordia faculty have studied quantum optics, attention and working memory, the impact of the north dakota oil boom on religious communities, how to keep neurons alive, and many other exciting questions.
