Academic discovery and creative inquiry are crucial to student success, and not only at the graduate level. Therefore, we offer many opportunities for undergraduate research, including an undergraduate research journal, Crossing Borders: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Undergraduate Scholarship, and research-specific undergraduate program. The university has instituted the Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Inquiry, directed by Anita Cortez.
Many of the university's colleges and departments offer undergraduate research opportunities. Summer research programs are also an excellent way to strengthen your research foundation and make connections for the future.
