What really sets Clarkson and this program apart from other programs is our emphasis on learning by doing. Students are actively involved in the research labs at Clarkson, but large numbers also take summer internships off campus at such places as the Trudeau Institute in nearby Saranac Lake. Many of the undergraduates take part in faculty-directed research projects. Invariably our alumni tell us that time spent with the faculty in research turns out to be the most important learning experience of their college career.
Faculty in the Biomolecular Science Program work closely with undergraduates, and students have the opportunity to become involved in research projects throughout the school year and during the summer.
