Why Undergraduate Research?
While research is a vital tool for graduate students and graduate programs, unfortunately, little or no research is done on the undergraduate level. When people think of research, they often connect it with science and engineering, creating the misguided perception that it is done only in those areas. However, all areas of study sometimes require a certain amount of research or background checking of some kind. Consequently, this article provides an overview of undergraduate research and emphasizes its importance, advantages, and benefits.
