Research Opportunities

  • At Pitt-Bradford, you won't be limited to learning just in a classroom. You'll also have many opportunities to conduct research. You'll work side by side with your professor in many of our academic majors, including biology, criminal justice, mathematics, sociology, chemistry and psychology.

    You'll also have opportunities to present your research. Many of our students presented at the Annual Honors Day, which is held on campus each spring. Students are also selected each year to present at the annual  Penn-York Undergraduate Research Conference.

     Our students have researched 
    • Law enforcement deaths and assaults 
    • Human trafficking 
    • Environmental factors' effects on over-the-counter medicines 
    • Cyberactivism
    • Preschool problem solving
    • Extremophile bacteria
    • Biomass fuels and lubricants
    • Ethnotourism in Himalayan India
    • Sex in advertising
    • Navajo healers
    • Oversharing between service workers and customers
    • Tumor development in fruit flies

    And that's just the beginning. You may even get it published in an academic journal. Other students have. Your research opportunities are limited only by your imagination.
