Student Experience

Undergraduate Research Opportunities

Many Communication Studies majors find ways to pursue their interests more deeply through involvement in undergraduate research. 

Students who choose to conduct research as undergraduates gain solid preparation for future graduate studies and the workplace, while also forging strong connections with members of the faculty. 

In addition to their individual research projects, many faculty in the Communication Studies department maintain active research labs where they explore issues at the forefront of the field. Students in the department have involved themselves in these labs through work-study positions, through Research Practica (through which they may earn academic credit) and as Research Assistants.
