Benefits of Research

Undergraduate research significantly enriches the educational experience for many students. In undergraduate research, students have the opportunity to work closely with a faculty mentor on a particular project. By participating in undergraduate research, students gain the opportunity to:

  • enhance their skills and expertise in a particular field
  • apply those skills to the investigation and experimentation on the frontiers of knowledge
  • see how questions about nature are formulated and investigated
  • participate in the discovery of new knowledge
  • foster an enthusiasm for life long learning
