Undergraduate Research

Engaging in research or working on a creative activity as an undergraduate student is a fantastic way to work closely with prominent faculty members and researchers, learn more about an area of interest, apply classroom knowledge, and expand skills while building your professional resume.

Undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activities describe collaborations between students and faculty members in the sciences, arts, humanities, and social sciences. It is inquiry into an area or investigation that allows an undergraduate student to make a unique contribution (intellectual, original, or creative) to their field.

This contribution can be in the form of new knowledge, interpretation of knowledge, or artistic/creative performance.
