This page lists a number of course-based research experiences available to students, and will list more as we become aware of them and they are made available. Do you know of something we need to add? Send the information to Kelley Merriam-Castro at email@example.com.
Vertically Integrated Projects (VIPs)
VIPs engage undergraduate and graduate students in ambitious, long-term, large-scale, multidisciplinary project teams that are led by faculty. For more information, visit the VIP website at https://uavip.arizona.edu/.
Course-based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs)
CUREs are courses specifically designed for first-year, second-year, or transfer students looking to gain an authentic research experience right away. Many CURE classes have no prerequisites! CUREs take a research question based on a faculty member's field of study that requires many people to complete the data collection and analysis. Students in a CURE class participate in this project, helping to move novel research questions forward and advance our understanding in that field. CUREs look great on a resume. They can help students determine if a particular research field is right for them. The skills developed in a CURE class can also establish the necessary relationships and trajectory to be competitive for future research opportunities. To view all of the CURE classes, visit the CURE webpage. For classes currently open for enrollment, see current offerings.
