How to get Started Workshop a Success!
OURI hosted two workshops last Friday on “How to get Started” in undergraduate research. Over 40 students in attendance learned how to identify research questions and worked on small interactive projects.
There are a variety of course based opportunities in the different colleges. Some key ones are listed below:
Honors in the Major
Look for Honors programs within your discipline! Take research enriched courses and enhance your research and inquiry skills.
Direct Independent Study (DIS)
