Research, like everything, continues to look different due to Covid-19, but it hasn’t stopped. University faculty have been creative and student researchers have risen to the challenges. If you want to learn more about ways in which undergraduate students can engage in real research and creative projects, this mini-course will address a wide variety of opportunities including volunteering, taking a course, exploring the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) and Undergraduate Research Scholarship (URS), and participating in research.

For spring 2022, Think Like a Researcher will be a Canvas course with a mix of videos and short activities, as well as optional online panels and question and answer sessions. Once you register, you will receive updates with next steps. It's estimated that the course will take 2-3 hours to complete on your own timeline. A certificate of completion is available for participants who complete the mini-course and all topic discussion posts by Monday, Feb. 21.
