Undergraduate Research

At Miami, research opportunities are everywhere. Each year, more than 2,000 Miami students work with professors on funded research. It doesn't matter if your passion is art, music, public service, biology, or psychology, we have a research program that will work for you.

Consider the benefits

Conducting research can help you do the following:

  • Work with professionals in your field of study
  • Form relationships with people through the research process
  • Take classroom knowledge and put it to practical use
  • Get class credits outside of class
  • Gain public recognition for your work

Consider the possibilities

Undergraduate research can open doors for you! Whether on campus in Oxford or halfway around the world, you can join the thousands of Miami students engaged in exciting activities that range from painting murals in an urban neighborhood to plant identification for the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma to working towards medical breakthroughs. You might even find yourself co-authoring published research papers and presenting findings at professional conferences. 

Consider your options

At Miami, we offer so many ways to learn beyond the classroom. The Office of Research for Undergraduates is the place to start!
