Getting Involved in Research
Research is any scholarly activity that contributes to the production of new knowledge. Getting involved with research as an undergraduate student can help you to further delve into a specific research area, refine your analytical skills, and foster relationships with professors and research collaborators. At Boston University, you can conduct research (i) as a volunteer, (ii) for academic credit through your academic department, or (iii) as a UROP funded researcher. UROP offers students funding in the form of stipends, supplies, and travel for conducting research overseen by a faculty member.
