  • Define Undergraduate Research for Yourself

    It's your major, your interest, your creation. It is time to start asking yourself some questions. What do I want to explore?

    Read more about beginning the process >>

  • Be prepared for the unexpected

    Research can grow from other experiences -internships, volunteer work, a class, or travel.

  • So much to do...

    ...I don't know where to start. Here are some ideas to help you find the people and resources at UVM to get you going.

    Where do I get started?

  • Student Research Conference

    Come showcase your research! Each April UVM students present their research in the Davis Center at the SRC. If you have done original work outside the classroom, or as part of a 200-level (or above) course, this conference provides you with the space to share your work with the public. It is also a great place to learn about the fascinating things that student researchers are doing.

  • Research opportunities may be closer than you think

    Beyond the classroom, many students develop their research skills by assisting faculty or advance those skills by creating their own project.

  • Come celebrate the work of our students

    All UVM Students performing research or creative projects under the mentorship of a UVM faculty member are encouraged to participate in the UVM Student Research Conference.

  • Real world experience

    The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner provides semester-long and summer, unpaid internships. This is a rare opportunity to explore forensic science as it truly exists, not in the imaginings of tv producers.
