Undergraduate Research

Exciting discoveries await at a research university—and not just for professors. Students, too, join the quest for new knowledge, in laboratories and libraries, in nearby neighborhoods and far-flung outposts. There are many ways to get involved with research: Take a research-intensive course. Assist your professor with research. Launch your own independent research project. Whichever path you choose, research requires students to integrate higher-order skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, and persuasive writing. And what employer doesn’t value that skill set? Start your explorations with the resources below.
