Is Yale mostly focused on research?

Hey guys, I've been researching potential colleges and am curious about Yale's status as a research university. Is Yale primarily known for its research and are there plenty of opportunities for undergraduates? Thanks in advance!

Hi there! It's great to see that you're considering Yale as one of your options. Yale is indeed known for its research, but the university also has a strong focus on undergraduate education. In fact, Yale is committed to providing a liberal arts education to its students and ensuring they have a well-rounded experience.

As for research opportunities, Yale offers plenty of options for undergraduates. I've firsthand experience with my own child who had numerous chances to get involved in research projects across various disciplines. Many professors at Yale are excited to work with undergraduates and often have research assistant positions for them.

In addition to that, the Yale College Dean's Research Fellowship is a resource for funding independent research projects. So, you'll definitely have ample opportunities to pursue research at Yale. Hope this helps, and best of luck with your college search!
