If you want to conduct an undergraduate research project, take the following steps to get started:
- Review the research interests of the Human Biology faculty to determine who has expertise in your intended research area.
- Make an appointment with the faculty member(s) to discuss research options and determine whether they have the space and funding for an undergraduate research student during your semester(s) of interest.
If you qualify, we also encourage you to pursue Honors in the Major. This project should be planned during the junior year. The University has specific guidelines for an Honors in the Major. The criteria for an Honors in Human Biology are similar to that of a three or four credit undergraduate research with an additional requirement of a presentation at an undergraduate research symposium or a professional meeting.
