Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate Research

SMU Undergraduate Research offers students the ability to gain experience in a campus lab, to collaborate with a research group locally or globally, and to develop as a young researcher.

Students have opportunities for professional development and access to publish their work in the SMU Journal of Undergraduate Research.

Who's it for?

For the student who seeks answers and wants to discover those answers under the guidance of a professor, a scientist, a clinician or other expert in the field. There are programs for freshmen through seniors, and open to all disciplines.

Research Day is coming up on March 26th!! Come and see undergraduate research students present their research and creative works and eat some good food! If you're presenting, click the link on the right to confirm your participation.
