Undergraduate Research

One of the significant advantages of attending a research-intensive university is that students can choose to work closely with faculty members on research projects. These projects may be initiated by the student or may contribute to research the faculty members is already undertaking. Many IAS students take advantage of this opportunity to work closely with a faculty member in their field of expertise. These opportunities can satisfy degree requirements, advance students' their intellectual and professional interests, and be funded through a variety of UW resources. Undergraduate research can be particularly important for students considering graduate work in either academic or professional fields.

"In my view, the experience of researching, writing, and submitting my paper for the Library Research Award illustrates the exceptional nature of an education at University of Washington Bothell. The small size of the campus allows us to work closely with professors, librarians, and staff. The vast resources and prestige of the University of Washington allows us to perform in-depth research that can earn acclaim from one of the nation's top schools. I encourage all Bothell students to take advantage of both of these aspects of an education at UW Bothell. My experiences have been truly rewarding."
