Undergraduate Research is a cornerstone of the Christopher Newport experience.
Here, students explore and address the pressing questions facing humanity and contribute to the creation of new knowledge.
Through the close mentorship of professors, undergraduate research fosters independent learning and complements coursework in meaningful ways. Students learn valuable skills that lead to success after graduation.
Opportunities abound for students in every discipline, and result in insightful and creative papers, compelling experiments, artwork and performances. Student work has led to publication in notable journals, presentations at conferences both here and abroad, and performances across the country.
At most schools, students must wait until graduate studies to immerse themselves deeply in meaningful research. We put the focus on the undergraduate research experience. Whatever field excites you, you’ll find a unique opportunity to explore it here.
