What is undergraduate research?
Doing research might mean running an experiment in a laboratory, collecting data in the field, digging in the archives, creating in the studio, and more. Across a wide range of settings and methods, undergraduate research means inquiring, investigating, and learning under the guidance of a faculty mentor.
- Undergraduate research can happen in any subject area or major.
- Students can get involved in undergraduate research at any point in their education—from their first semester to graduation.
- A wide spectrum of contexts can help you to connect to undergraduate research experiences during the academic year or over the summer: during a class, as part of a team, or independently.
