Undergraduate research fosters independent learning and complements coursework in meaningful, self-enriching ways.
It is an academic inquiry conducted by an undergraduate student, which employs discipline-specific methodologies and results in a product notable for its originality, rigor, and / or creativity. Suitable products include essays, reports, experiments, artworks, or performances. Research opportunities are available in all fields of study, including the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, applied sciences, and fine arts.
Undergraduate research at CNU is presented annually at the on-campus Paideia Conference. Download the Paideia 2013 Call for Papers.
