Student Research at National Conferences
Our art history students participate in regional and national research conferences. Seniors regularly present the results of their theses at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research, the most competitive gathering of undergraduate scholars in the country. Students follow a rigorous application process. Juniors are encouraged to participate in other conferences. Wittenberg rewards the successful candidates with travel and presentation grants.
