As a center for new discoveries in the liberal arts, Ivan Allen College offers a wealth of opportunities for undergraduate research. This is a substantial experience with potential to advance knowledge in a field. The undergraduate research plan includes independent, faculty-guided research and a research-based senior thesis or design project. A highlight for many students is the one-to-one mentoring by faculty who are engaged in cutting-edge research in the social sciences and humanities.

“I went to my professor sophomore year with little knowledge of what he was doing – just thinking it was really cool – and asked if I could join in. Almost immediately, I started research with him. I now have a stronger design and programming background. Research is that easy and that useful.”
