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 Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Fair, 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
- Testing interactions of RNA
