Research

Back

Bryn Athyn College offers a number of research opportunities for both faculty and students. One of our most prestigious research projects is our ongoing Deer Study, which works to track white-tailed deer fitted with high tech GPS/GSM radio collars in the suburban oasis of the Pennypack Watershed.

Each summer, faculty members are eligible for research grants from the institution, and many faculty members apply for outside research grants as well.
