Undergraduate Research

Are you curious about a topic? Research involves inquiry, design, investigation, scholarship, discovery, application, writing and/or performance. It can be faculty mentored or self-directed work that enables individual students or small groups of students to explore an issue of interest to them, and share the results to others. Our proximity to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore affords students immediate connection and the ability to research a local, national, or international issue, as well as an increased appreciation of the value of multidisciplinary approaches.
