Undergraduate Student Research

About Undergraduate Student Research

Undergraduate research includes scholarly and creative activities conducted by undergraduate students, in collaboration with faculty mentors, for the purpose of examining, creating or sharing knowledge or works in ways consistent with practices within Communication. Participating in undergraduate research increases your marketability for graduate and professional school and employment. You have the opportunity to apply theories you learn in the classroom to "real world" problems and questions. Your skill set improves—including critical thinking, problem solving and more.
