Undergraduate Research

    Because undergraduate research helps students hone problem-solving skills, improve academic performance and scores on tests like the MCAT and GRE, and gain new knowledge, the Department of Chemistry encourages students to start research projects before their senior year. Students who participate in research as undergraduates are better prepared for graduate school, professional schools, and future careers, regardless of field. Many student researchers even co-author publications in professional journals or present their work at off-campus scientific meetings while they are still undergraduates. The following links show research opportunities in the Department of Chemistry, information about the summer undergraduate research program, and opportunities to obtain financial support for your participation.
