Why do research?

  • Work one-on-one with a faculty member as you explore your interests and define your career goals. 
  • Contribute to the creation of scientific breakthroughs as you sharpen your critical and analytical thinking skills while helping inform communities.
  • Complement and expand your classroom learning and extend your intellectual property by preparing yourself for graduate-level study and professional school.
  • Present your research at scientific meetings, while offering opportunities of publications in journals, teaching assistantships, and internships, leading to potential employment after graduation.

To find a research mentor, speak to a professor whose research interests you by visiting the Faculty Directory. Additional information about internship programs, including the necessary forms for signing up can be found on the Internships page.
