Undergraduate Research

No matter what your major is, as an undergraduate student at UNE you can become actively involved in a vast array of exciting projects that engage you in meaningful research and scholarship.

This website will help you discover the opportunities you have to engage with faculty on projects in the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities and health professions. The site provides information to help you identify an interesting research project. It also offers information about potential funding sources for the research you might do.

We also use this site to highlight the outstanding beyond-the-classroom work our students are doing. You’ll find here information about your peers’ publications and presentations, and information about the research they’re conducting.

We encourage you to explore these pages, talk to your department faculty, and challenge yourself to discover new knowledge and ideas through an undergraduate research project.
