Research Experiences

2YC students should be exposed to the same types of opportunities as their 4YC peers. However, given the external constraints of employment, family responsibilities, and transportation, 2YC students face challenges in participating in extra-curricular activities. By building course credit and financial support into these experiences, and emphasizing the relevance of participation in these activities to future success, 2YC students can be encouraged to take an active role in a broader community of geoscience learning.

Because many community colleges may lack the resources necessary to conduct large-scale research programs, success can often be found through partnerships with 4YCs. There are also research and internship programs available specifically for 2YC students and faculty, and some national professional organizations are looking to expand their programming to 2YCs.
