In addition to the Senior Project, which all Psychology concentrators undertake, Hamilton students have several other opportunites to gain research experience. Several members of the Psychology Department include students in ongoing investigations, and this is incorporated under the rubric of the partial credit courses entitled Collaborative Research in Psychology (Psych 198 and 298). Many students in the sciences spend several weeks during the summer working as research assistants with professors, and they are paid for their work either from endowed funds or faculty grant support. Finally, up to seven seniors per year are selected to become Hamilton College Senior Fellows, which involve a substantial, year long investigation supervised by at least two faculty members and culminating in a campus lecture and a written thesis that is entered into the collection at the Burke Library.
