Undergraduate research experiences are both entrepreneurial and transformational. Students gain understanding of published works, apply new knowledge to world challenges, and learn collaboration skills that jumpstart their professional careers in the sciences, humanities, and design. For some, these experiences ignite a lifelong passion for research, which can lead to graduate school and professions in higher education. Student-centered undergraduate research is an essential component in Ball State’s goal of becoming a model 21st century public research university.
Examples of high-impact, undergraduate research projects can be found across Ball State’s campus:
Each semester, new opportunities are announced. To learn more about undergraduate projects in your discipline, contact your home department. For interdisciplinary opportunities and upcoming programs, contact Suzanne Plesha in the Office of Entrepreneurial Learning.
