A private university of 11,000 students near the center of Dallas, SMU offers strong undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs through seven schools.
There are many different kinds of opportunities for research at SMU. These
enable students to engage in research in many different contexts. A
student wishing to work on research might apply for an Undergraduate
Research Assistantship or an Engaged Learning Project. Honors students could apply for a Richter Scholar award. Within Dedman College, the Hamilton Undergraduate Research Scholars program fosters strong faculty-student collaboration. Interdisciplinary teams might put together a Big iDeas proposal. These programs each have different emphases and students are encouraged to look for the best match to their research interests.
