Whether you plan to go on to graduate school or a job in industry, doing undergraduate research will bolster your résumé and broaden your post-grad opportunities.
Each year the College holds a special UROC job fair in which faculty talk about their research projects and describe the kinds of positions open to undergraduates.
Several options may be available including:
- Cash! (get paid)
- Credit! (elective credit)
- Karma! (volunteer)
Can I do interdisciplinary research?
Absolutely. If your advisor is from your home department, your reader may be from another department. If you wish to complete Research Option with a primary advisor not from your own degree program, then you need to write a short proposal explaining what sort of research you plan to do. This proposal must be approved by the UROC faculty committee. Before you write it up, email email@example.com and we'll set up an appointment to discuss your plans with you. All reasonable plans are approved.
