Explore the Benefits of Undergraduate Research

Getting involved in one of HHS’ many research laboratories will allow you to apply the knowledge and methods you’ve learned in class to real-world challenges facing human health and well-being, including disease prevention, consumer behavior, health policy, social relationships and much more. Whether you plan to pursue graduate school or a career outside of research, you’ll gain valuable skills to help you succeed, from collecting and analyzing data to presenting complex ideas in simple terms.

Get Involved in HHS Research

From exploring opportunities around the college to selecting a research mentor, the Office of Undergraduate Research offers many resources to help you, including these steps to get started.

As you begin looking for research opportunities, you’ll want to make sure you have an up-to-date resume. Researchers will want to see your most current work and how it relates to their research.

Once you determine the appropriate research area, consider reaching out to the researcher to discuss potential opportunities.

Research opportunities are also regularly distributed through our listserv, which you can join to receive email updates about ways you can get involved.
