Real-World Research



A student in a red raincoat sitting next to a tranquilized polar bear in the arctic tundraChoosing to learn from world-renowned researchers doesn’t mean you’ll be standing by. Quite the opposite, in fact. At Trent, you are at the centre of your educational experience, and most of our programs are research intensive.

Our graduate students can be found around the world conducting hands-on research, alongside their professors and contributing to the creation of new knowledge. Consider an anthropological dig in Central America, trips to Indigenous communities across North America, or monitoring polar bears in the Arctic.
