Student Research

Research opportunities on a wide range of topics related to climate change are available across the Emory campus, and are open to qualified and energetic junior researchers from many backgrounds. Prospective graduate or undergraduate students should read recent research manuscripts and theses from Emory faculty and students to become familiar with the diverse research being conducted on campus.  

Research Opportunities

  • Undergraduate students are able to conduct research through the Scholarly Inquiry and Research at Emory (SIRE)program.  Students interested in conducting research for a full academic year are eligible to apply and they will be matched with a faculty member, if successful.  SIRE students can either apply a work-study fellowship or gain course credits.  All students present their year-long research at a formal research symposium in April.
  • Undergraduate students interested in conducting research during the summer are encouraged to apply for the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience.  SURE students conduct guided research over the summer and participate in a formal research symposium at the end of the program.

Global Field Experiences

  • The Rollins School of Public Health offers Masters of Public Health (MPH) students opportunities to conduct a Global Field Experience.  See descriptions of past student experiences in this program.
