Research is the chance to explore, on your own, the subjects which most intrigue you, and to share your findings with others. In the process, you gain first-hand familiarity with the subject; in the most rewarding cases, you may discover or figure out something that no one else has ever discovered or figured out before. Research promotes analytical skills and ushers you into the wider scholarly community of researchers, both students and faculty. Learn more in the Honors/Independent study section.
