Getting Started

Whether you are interested in basic or applied scientific research, or curious about scholarship in the humanities, social sciences or the creative arts, you will find that Princeton offers and supports many opportunities to explore your scholarly interests beyond the classroom walls and as early as the summer of freshman year.  The research-related course projects and summer research internships you take on, your junior independent work, and your senior thesis give you multiple opportunities to work closely with faculty and other members of the Princeton research community on scholarly topics you feel passionate about.
