Guide to Undergraduate Research at Duke

Duke is among the top universities for research, but when you think of research, do you think of undergraduates?

If you answered no, think again. Research isn’t only for faculty or graduate students; undergrads can begin participating in research in a multitude of ways from as early as their first year at Duke.

The Directors of Academic Engagement, faculty, and students from across Duke took time this year to explain the value of research experiences for undergraduates and break down the elusive process of finding a research project.

From Dance and English, Political Science and Psychology, to Biology and Neuroscience, these Duke researchers demonstrate the various types of opportunities available to students in all areas of Duke while breaking down myths that research is out of reach.
