(Re)Searching for Answers

Are you passionate about a specific subject area or topic? Stop by undergraduate research info sessions in NYC and PLV to find out what students and faculty are currently working on, how great it looks on your resume, and how you can get involved!

Tuberculosis. Parasitic diseases. The sense of smell of zebrafish. The effects of video gaming on impulsive behavior in college students. Star Trek and history. Sex differences and romantic rejection. These are just a few of the topics students and faculty members have tackled over the last two years through funding from Pace’s Undergraduate Research Initiative. Whether you’re thinking about applying for an grant to work with a faculty member on a research project and possibly win additional funding to present at a national conference or you just want to learn more about research opportunities at Pace, it’s time for you to hear more about the Undergraduate Research Preparation Series!

Undergraduate research is an excellent way to prepare for graduate school, post-baccalaureate opportunities, and full-time jobs. If you are interested in working closely with a professor on high-level academic research at some point during your college career, you are encouraged to attend the second seminar in the Undergraduate Research Preparation Series on Scholarly Research and Design, where you will learn about different types of research and research design.
