As a national research university, UAH offers undergraduates the opportunity to take part in research throughout their academic career. Research and creative projects are integral to preparing for a professional career or further study, no matter the field.

Research allows students to...

  • Develop skills in problem-solving and analysis
  • Learn something that's not in a textbook
  • Get hands-on experience
  • Make a contribution to their field with real-world implications
  • Challenge themselves in new ways
  • Collaborate with experts in their area of study (faculty, researchers, and graduate students)
  • Build a resume or portfolio that stands out in the job market

Studies show that undergraduates involved in research tend to...

  • Stay enrolled, do better academically, and graduate
  • Create strong relationships with faculty, researchers, and administrators
  • Participate in other opportunities (scholarships, internships, awards, leadership positions)
  • Be better prepared for graduate school and the job market
