Research/Service Opportunities

Research Opportunities

Faculty in the department frequently hire students in many different capacities. You can check out the exciting research being done or look at individual faculty’s areas of interest and contact them directly.  Faculty also several community outreach programs in which students can become active. And be sure to always be checking your e-mail and Schaub Hall bulletin boards frequently for additional opportunities!

Students can also find out about research opportunities through the University’s Office of Undergraduate Research and those who qualify can participate with our faculty in a more structured research program through the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Honors Program or the University’s Honors Program.
