Undergraduate Research

Research is defined in a variety of ways depending on the opportunities within a major, field of interest, or field of study.  No matter the area, research activity provides an original contribution to the field in a way that can be shared with others. 

Engaging in undergraduate research can offer numerous benefits for college students, both academically and personally. 

There are many opportunities to participate in research while at Augustana College.
