There is no time like the present.

Through research, College of Science students develop a practical expertise and intellectual passion for their chosen field.

Stay Curious

Undergraduate researchers are better prepared for graduate school or professional employment because they have developed the skills and confidence to experiment. Student researchers discover that asking questions will lead to answers, and each answer leads to another question, another possibility, another opportunity. Undergraduate research allows students to dig deeply into the mysteries of their discipline and to discover themselves.

Students can conduct their own individual research projects, work with a faculty member, pursue honors in the discipline, or be part of a group project.
