What is Undergraduate Research?
Undergraduate research at NAU takes many forms and occurs in every discipline, from forestry and mechanical engineering to art history and philosophy. The Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship defines undergraduate research as:
A process of scholarly inquiry and/or creative activity conducted by undergraduate students, typically in collaboration with mentors, for the purpose of examining, evaluating, creating, and sharing knowledge or works in ways consistent with practices for their relevant discipline(s).
By participating in undergraduate research, students have the opportunity to earn course credit, get paid, present, and publish their research.
