Undergraduate Research

Weinberg College makes a special effort to ensure that its undergraduates have access to research opportunities and support. In addition to discovering new knowledge, conducting research can develop analytical and creative thinking skills. Research skills give our graduates the tools, self-confidence, and inspiration to tackle a wide range of challenges across a variety of different professions with discipline and creativity. 

Find opportunities

Two opportunities undergraduate students have to pursue research within the College are the Undergraduate Research Assistant Program and Undergraduate Research Grants Program. Whether assisting faculty with research or working independently on research projects of their own design, Weinberg students conduct research in a variety of different environments including chemistry labs, libraries, museums, health clinics, and archeological digs.
