Undergraduate Student Research

What is UR?

At Armstrong, undergraduates pursue investigation, inquiry, and creative expression across the curriculum in the sciences, arts, and humanities. Undergraduate research takes many forms:

Undergraduate research (UR) broadens the college experience by offering engaged learning opportunities. UR focuses on conducting experiments, analyzing data, interpreting a text or a work of art within an historical and cultural context, making connections, exploring meaning, or uncovering contradictions. Working closely with faculty members, Armstrong undergraduates discover the process of learning as they collaborate on projects. Doing independent research allows students to develop their own original ideas and present them to a wider audience; they become producers, not just consumers, of knowledge.
