Claremont-Carnegie Astrophysics Research Program

Claremont Colleges Undergraduate Lectures

The Observatories are working with Pomona College to conduct a joint research seminar for upper-level undergraduate students from The Claremont Colleges (Pomona, Harvey Mudd, Scripps, Pitzer and Claremont McKenna). Each spring, Carnegie staff astronomers deliver 5-6 lectures, on a volunteer basis, related to topical areas in cosmology and extragalactic astronomy.

Claremont Undergraduate Internships at the Observatories

These paid internships provide a rare opportunity for the most motivated students to spend the summer or parts of the school year assisting astronomers as they compile and analyze their data. Undergraduates from The Claremont Colleges typically spend 10 weeks at Carnegie conducting original research under the supervision of staff members—a chance for high-level, hands-on research that undergraduate students at liberal arts colleges would not ordinarily receive.
