Undergraduate Research

UNC Asheville practically invented undergraduate research, by founding one of the top conferences in the nation – the National Conference on Undergraduate Research – and to this day more than 60 percent of students complete original research on a topic of their choice. You’ll work directly with a faculty mentor to develop your idea, complete the research and present your project – an opportunity most often found in graduate programs. Research includes scholarly and creative opportunities, so no matter your major, you can complete projects in topics from art to physics or any combination that creates new knowledge and earns distinction with your degree.
