Student research and service learning
We value involvement both inside and outside the classroom, and we show it. Hamline students are building databases to track mass shootings, working in our partner elementary school, and researching the effects of nutritional supplements on athletic performance side-by-side with faculty.
Hamline's honors programs are an opportunity for students to take the lead in academic excellence, research experience, community engagement, and personal development.
It was all of the opportunities that drew me here. I walked into the bookstore and could see myself here, and when I realized it had a great criminology and criminal justice program, that was it. It had a magic to it.
Explore student life
