Sarah Talaat, a student in the Media, Culture & Identities BDP, spent the summer before her senior year researching the history and evolution of Wien Hauptbahnhof, the central train station in Vienna, Austria. Her firsthand observations of the site, along with her study of Vienna’s rich history, informed her research and helped her understand the significance of this site. Sarah’s experience conducting research reaffirmed the importance of exploring the history and meaning of the places and buildings around us.
Matthew Snidal, a student in the Social Entrepreneurship & Non-profits BDP, spent the summer before his senior year participating in the Research Experience for Undergraduates program, in partnership with the Population Research Center. Through this experience, Matthew was able to conduct a study of the relationship between the number of days a student has been suspended and the likelihood of that student graduating from high school. As a result, Matthew has refined the focus for his future graduate studies, in which he hopes to continue exploring the intersection of education and criminology.
Human Rights & Social Justice BDP student Sarah Qureshy pursued an independent research study investigating prisoners’ rights within the English criminal justice system.
