Dietrich School faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students are actively engaged in interdisciplinary research efforts in the School and across the University of Pittsburgh. These partnerships—including ongoing collaborations with the University’s School of Medicine, the Swanson School of Engineering, and the University Center for International Studies—have led to significant developments in nanoscience, neuroscience, and global studies. Dietrich School faculty members secure significant external funding support for their research, technology, and programmatic initiatives, while distinguishing themselves in their disciplines.

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research in the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences is facilitated both at the departmental level and through the Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship, and Creative Activity.  This office connects our students with opportunities to add value to their education by gaining hands-on experience working side-by-side with some of the University’s most talented professors. Learn more about research opportunities for undergraduates. 

Graduate Research

The Grad Expo is an all-day event where Dietrich School graduate students from a variety of disciplines present papers and posters to students, faculty, and other members of the University community. The event provides the opportunity for burgeoning scholars to gain experience presenting their research as well as fostering interdisciplinary communication among the departments and programs in the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences.
