Since Fall 2011, the UNH Graduate Council has required all incoming doctoral students to complete training in the responsible conduct of research (RCR) and scholarly activity by the end of their first semester. Read more about these requirements on our RCR Webpage.
It’s been called an epidemic, the staggering increase in the number of deaths from opioid drug overdoses in New Hampshire in recent years; by the end of 2016, it’s predicted that the number will reach nearly 480. Dual degree J.D./MSW graduate Courtney Gray is doing her part to help service providers across the state help those struggling with addiction. Read more about Courtney and her experiences in the J.D./MSW Dual Degree program.
Two UNH students and one incoming grad student have been awarded prestigious NSF Graduate Research Fellowships. Current UNH doctoral student Wyatt Shell will use his fellowship to support his carpenter bee research, while incoming graduate student Clarice Perryman's fellowship will be put to use supporting her studies of methane production in permafrost ecosystems. Read more about this year's GRF recipients.
UNH is fortunate to have had many engaging students over its 20 plus years of being an exchange destination. Bence Cserna and Laszlo Kindrat, both from Hungary, stand out as students whose experience at UNH had a profound impact on their lives and career direction, and both students are now pursuing Ph.D.s. Read more about Bence and Laszlo's experiences as exchange students.
A recent study conducted by UNH graduate students and researchers found that the quality of the nutrient-rich milk newborn dairy calves first drink from their mothers can be predicted by the mother’s previous lactation performance and weather. Their methods can allow dairy producers to predict milk quality before the calf is born and subsequently reduce risks to the animals. Read more about this exciting research.
When doctoral student Krist Hausken went to Israel recently to work with a collaborator of his mentor Dr. Stacia Sower, he not only came back with a research breakthrough but a clear picture of what he wants to do after he graduates from UNH. Read more about Hausken's experiences abroad and the career and research breakthroughs he brought home.
Doctoral students who have an upcoming dissertation oral defense will be announced on our website to help raise awareness about the research being conducted across campus. Take this oppurtunity to learn about the different types of research our graduate students are working on!
