Research Experiences

Interested in Undergraduate Research?

Engaging in research at the undergraduate level has many benefits. Research gives you the opportunity to take what you have learned in the classroom and apply those skills and knowledge to a real-life question.

Research helps you to understand concepts that are integral to your area of study. You will improve your self-confidence, critical thinking skills, and communication skills. The research experience and the networking opportunities it provides will ultimately help you in making your career decisions.
