Undergraduate Research

Are you interested in a hands-on education?

Undergraduate students in the Dr. Ezekiel R. Dumke College of Health Professions can work directly with faculty on projects that involve research, scholarly and creative activities. Projects can be part of a regular course, or a student can design and implement a project, with faculty support and guidance.

Benefits of participating in undergraduate research include:

  • Increased marketability for graduate school and employment
  • Opportunity to apply learned theories to practical, real-life situations
  • Improved skills, including critical thinking and problem-solving.
The college’s Marriott endowment provides funding for undergraduate work that supports faculty research. Other funding for projects is available through the DCHP Undergraduate Research Account, recently started with a donation from the Edith Dee Mack Green Foundation, and through Weber State University’s Undergraduate Research Committee.
