About the Office of Undergraduate Research

The University of Arizona, College of Science encourages undergraduates to reach beyond the traditional classroom learning and enhance their education by participating in hands-on learning through a research experience. In collaborations with faculty, graduate students, technical staff, and peers, undergrads have the opportunity to become part of the process of discovering new information and technologies while working on real world problems. Take a step beyond the classroom and become part of world-class research ranging from the search for life on Mars to the study of complex diseases such as cancer. Use the website to explore undergraduate research opportunities and learn how to become involved.
