The Department offers numerous opportunities for students to engage in research under the direction of a faculty member. Each semester, approximately 40 undergraduates participate in supervised research opportunities. Students are encouraged to look for opportunities that match their area of interest. Undergraduate students may do so either for credit (up to six hours) or on a volunteer basis. Please visit the Faculty & Staff web page to see the range of research among the faculty.
Involvement in research is highly recommended for students planning to pursue graduate study. Most graduate students also engage in supervised research, either as part of their responsibilities as a Research Assistant or in the completion of their master's theses.
