Undergraduate Research

Welcome to the Honors Undergraduate Research Program. Thanks to the generosity of Bobby and Judy Shackouls, we are able to support research and creative activity by students in the Shackouls Honors College.

Undergraduate research affords you the opportunity to apply what you already know to new issues that interest you, and allows you to develop new skills. It is our hope that you will learn what sort of creative work a scholar in your field does. You will meet others with similar interests, gain confidence, immerse yourself in the intellectual environment at MSU, and use your experiences to help you choose a future career path. The creation of new works fuels the joy of discovery. Find out where your imagination can take you.

Explore this site to find research projects and funding opportunities. If you have an idea of your own, consult with a faculty member or contact us for assistance. If you have any questions, please stop by our offices or send us an email. We are here to help.
