As a student at ACU, you will have the opportunity to participate in real-world, hands-on research in a variety of fields. Work directly with faculty members on research projects that often result in publication in scholarly journals and will give you experience prized by employers and graduate schools. Participate in ACU’s annual Undergraduate Research Fair and showcase your work.
At ACU, we value and encourage scholarly activity and innovation. Allowing our students to participate in undergraduate research as early as their freshman year engages their intellectual curiosity, satisfies their thirst for discovery, and gives them an outlet for their creativity. A lot of learning occurs when undergraduate students do research – learning that does not happen during traditional coursework. Classroom knowledge is reinforced and more completely assimilated when students are given the opportunity to apply that knowledge.
