Undergraduate Research Experiences

Students who pursue research during their undergraduate career benefit from the opportunities many institutions only offer at the graduate or doctoral level. Conducting research encourages problem-solving and personal inquiry, enhances hands-on involvement within a discipline or major, and teaches a variety of skills that cannot be taught from a textbook.
