Ask a Student

Undergraduate research, scholarly and creative activities are a great way for you to integrate what you’ve learned in the classroom by applying it to a real-life situation and coming up with an original solution.

At UIS, students work closely with faculty to conduct their own research projects.

How to do an undergraduate research project:

  • Talk with your faculty advisor
  • Enroll in a research methods course
  • Expand a term paper into a thesis
  • Apply for an research internship
  • Reflect on your art show or music/theater performance
  • Present at the annual Student Arts & Research Symposium (StARS)
