Student Research & International Programs

Students complete their own impressive research at Oxy through programs like the Undergraduate Research Center and the Young Initiative. The International Programs Office sponsors research abroad as part of their many different programs of off-campus study. Read about Oxy's Rebellious Lawyering program, led by Associate Professor of Politics Thalia González. Like the College’s Kahane United Nations and Campaign Semester programs, it is a unique opportunity for students to combine classroom theory with hands-on experience—in this case, with public-interest law firms and nonprofits in Los Angeles. 

Oxy is a top producer of Fulbright recipients and other national and international fellowships, with students regularly receiving these highly selective awards thanks to the individual guidance provided by the Office of National & International Fellowships.
