Research Opportunities

Our faculty are dedicated to mentoring students, and we work to support student-faculty research in every way possible.

We provide many opportunities and resources for faculty and students interested in participating in research. Our Office of Grants Administration helps faculty secure funding from a variety of sources including government grants and sponsored research opportunities. The Center for Graduate School and Fellowship Advisement helps students understand the importance of undergraduate research experience in preparation for graduate school and fellowship applications.

Student Research Opportunities

Research experience is important; it is vital preparation for graduate work and professional careers. That's why we provide many funded opportunities to do research at the undergraduate level. In addition to the specific research programs listed below, we also offer independent study projects where you can work with a faculty member on a research project for credit over the course of a semester.
