Why Research and overview of Credit Based Undergraduate Research Courses

CUREs are courses specifically designed for first-year, second-year, or transfer students looking to gain an authentic research experience right away. Many CURE classes have no prerequisites! CUREs take a research question based on a faculty member’s field of study that requires many people to complete the data collection and analysis. Students in a CURE class participate in this project, helping to move novel research questions forward and advance our understanding in that field. CUREs look great on a resume. They can help students determine if a particular research field is right for them. The skills developed in a CURE class can also establish the necessary relationships and trajectory to be competitive for future research opportunities. To view CURE classes available now, see current offerings. To view courses available in future semester, visit the list of descriptions on the CURE course webpage.
