Undergrad Research Opportunities

Undergraduate research opportunities are planned activities where students:

  • Work collaboratively with faculty mentors and graduate students
  • Participate in hands-on, engaging inquiry
  • Create and share new knowledge

Our college and the university offer multiple paths to engage students in research in both social science and bench science settings. Engaging in these programs allows students to apply their coursework, build their resumes to become more competitive in both the job market and for graduate school admissions.

The following links provide more detail regarding undergraduate research programs within your college (internal) and external research/fellowship competitions within OSU as a whole.
