Oxy’s Undergraduate Research Center (URC) provides resources for creative endeavors and original projects on- and off-campus, in all disciplines. You may apply to conduct research of your own design, or join a faculty research team through URC’s annual Summer Research Program. More than 100 students participate each year, working with faculty mentors on disciplines ranging from chemistry to economics, psychology, music, and urban and environmental policy.

Many Oxy students conduct research as part of their senior comps project, and the Library and Center for Digital Liberal Arts provide knowledgeable staff and cutting-edge technological resources. You’ll also have access to a range of academic support services. Finally, whether the topic is research, career options or life itself, meaningful interaction between students and professors is an important part of the Oxy experience.
