Undergraduate Research

Conducting research under the direction of a faculty member is a rewarding experience and a valuable component of undergraduate education. Many students receive credit for research as part of an independent study course, and students may be eligible to apply for Undergraduate Research Stipends.

Students interested in exploring research opportunities should talk to a faculty member in their area of interest.
