Graduate Research Opportunities
Undergraduate Research Opportunities
At the U of L, undergraduate students are involved in research activities often only available to graduate and PhD students at other institutions.
Research opportunities are available through research and independent studies, applied studies, co-operative education and internships. For current undergraduate research opportunities, please contact departments and/or faculty members directly or connect with the Co-op or Applied Studies programs.
Being involved in research is a tremendous opportunity for learning – particularly when it's combined with a liberal education.
U of L students – at all levels – play a key room in the discoveries they learn about in the classroom. By participating in the investigative journey, your learning will go beyond the theoretical to the practical. Your curiosity will pique, your creativity will grow and your confidence to handle future academic challenges will increase. You'll gain critical-thinking and communication skills that will help you in advanced studies or the workplace. And you'll have the opportunity to work with some of world's brightest minds and most accomplished researchers.
