Beyond the classroom

Undergraduate Anatole Schneider researched the Italian election of 1948 using original newspapers from Italy at the Hoover Library & Archives.

Each year about 1,000 Stanford undergraduates work closely with faculty mentors on research ranging from engineering and medicine to the humanities, fine arts and social sciences, in some cases traveling world-wide.

These projects introduce students to the rigors of academic research, build analytic skills and also help students find their own future path, whether it’s diving deeper into academics or taking their passion and applying it to other careers.
