What is Undergraduate Research?

At USF, undergraduate research is broadly defined as a project that enables individual students or groups of students to pose or work from a defined research question, apply methods of inquiry to generate findings, and share the findings with others through presentation and publication.

Why is Undergraduate Research important?

Engaging in undergraduate research is transformational and highly beneficial to students, faculty and the greater university community. Many studies show that students involved in undergraduate research achieve higher grades, have a deeper understanding of their chosen discipline and are more competitive for jobs, national awards and admission to graduate and professional school.

Did you know?

In a recent poll of employers, 93% said that a candidate’s undergraduate major was less significant than a candidate’s ability to communicate effectively and apply knowledge to real-world problem solving
