Why Research?

  • Do you love puzzles, pursuing solutions, and investigating problems?
  • Do you long for out-of-class, independent, learning experiences in discovery, innovation, and/or creative endeavors?
  • Do you desire an engaging experience that allows you to apply and supplement your in-class learning?
  • Do you wish to engage in hands-on, cutting edge research with an expert in the field?
  • Do you wish to work one-on-one and be mentored by a committed WVU faculty member?
  • Do you thrive in an environment that depends on you - your initiative, motivation, rugged determination, and superior work ethic?

Then undergraduate research is for you!
