There are many different ways for undergraduates to get involved in research on campus. Eligible students from all departments can receive credit for research participation under the guidance of a faculty mentor by registering for courses such as Individual Investigation or Senior Honors Thesis. Undergraduate research assistant positions (often volunteer but sometimes paid) are available in many departments. Local, national, and international undergraduate research opportunities are also available. Internships or research programs, such as the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program sponsored by the National Science Foundation, offer intensive research experience and can include a stipend or other compensation. Fieldwork is another exciting option for those with interests in disciplines such as anthropology or geology.
