Graduate Research


Imagine being able to conduct research alongside professors from the Tulane School of Medicine, the School of Science and Engineering, the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and the Tulane National Primate Research Center. It’s no wonder that our graduate student researchers play a part in some of the top discoveries today.  Or pursue research under the direction of faculty from the School of Liberal Arts along with members of Social Work and Architecture that changes the way we look at the world.

All graduate students in the School of Science and Engineering engage in research, most often in collaboration with one or more members of the SSE faculty. Graduate students are credited as authors in any published works. In the School of Liberal Arts, graduate students find mentorship and support for their research, whether they conduct their scholarship and creative activities locally or around the world.

Check out our list of external funding resources for fellowships, research grants, and postdoctoral training. 

Read about the work our graduate students are doing:

  • Daniel Teles, a PhD student in economics, will use a dissertation grant awarded by the Corporation for National Community Service to study the effects of AmeriCorps grants to nonprofit organizations.
  • "I really want to help people who are disabled figure out their new road in life and what makes them happy.” Devon Walker, former Green Wave safety and football team captain, has returned to Tulane University to pursue a master’s degree in neuroscience and mentor student-athletes during their collegiate careers. 
  • To learn Portuguese in a Tulane University language class, students such as Erin Morrissey, who is in the Latin American studies graduate program, chat with partners in Brazil via Skype as part of the Teletandem language program.
