Undergraduate Research Opportunities
All three undergraduate degree programs in the Department of Social Sciences offer ample opportunities for students to gain experience with qualitative and quantitative research methods. Students learn to critically evaluate broad historical trends in their fields, and many learn to use geographic information systems, in addition to being trained in computational analysis. Internship and capstone projects can also provide additional applied learning opportunities for students to utilize their research skills.
Undergraduate Research Day
Hosted annually by Lewis College of Science and Letters, Undergraduate Research Day showcases research projects, internship experiences, creative projects, and senior capstones from students in humanities, psychology, and social sciences departments. This exhibition and awards ceremony is a great opportunity for students to develop new professional skills, make connections with like-minded individuals including faculty, and potentially even win an award.
