Undergraduate Research

The observation, discovery, or creation of previously unknown ideas—is at the heart of SMU's mission.

Ways to get involved with research

We strongly encourage undergraduate students to engage in research projects outside of their class assignments. Ways to get involved include Undergraduate Research Assistantships, the Engaged Learning Fellowship, and our Presentation and Publication opportunities, among other opportunities across campus.
