Benefits of Research

Participating in undergraduate research can provide opportunities for you to:

  • Work one-on-one with faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers;
  • Contribute to the creation of new knowledge;
  • Sharpen your critical and analytical thinking skills;
  • Complement and extend your classroom learning;
  • Enhance your confidence in your abilities;
  • Prepare for graduate-level study; and
  • Explore your interests and clarify your career goals.

Some of the greatest benefits of being involved in research are the insights it gives you on:

  • The ways you learn best;
  • How new knowledge is created;
  • What you can accomplish when actively engaging your own research questions; or
  • How to effectively collaborate in a team for a shared initiative.
