The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences provides opportunities for all students to design and conduct research and creative projects. You can join lab teams or you can work independently. Projects can last a semester or continue year-round. All research is mentored by full-time faculty who are invested in your success.
Mentoring — By working closely with faculty, you gain valuable insights into research and guidance for your professional hopes.
Strong research portfolio — You can complete numerous projects by the time you graduate. This prepares you for future academic studies and research-based careers.
Not just for upperclass students — You’re introduced to labs and basic research tools early so that you get a head-start in joining lab teams. If you’re interested in humanities, you also have opportunities for early involvement in research and creative production.
The mentorship relationship helps you with your research project, but also allows you to grow as a person. My mentor (Dr. Scott) assisted me with narrowing the scope of my research and determining the research question that I wanted to explore.
