Research Assistants

To promote original or creative intellectual contributions by talented undergraduates, the University Honors Program provides qualified and motivated Honors students with opportunities to participate in research assistance for academic credit with faculty around the university.

 

Students:

Students work with the Honors Program to discuss their goals and expectations and to register for academic credit for their research work. Students seeking 3 credit hours should expect to dedicate an average of six to nine hours a week, with the understanding that some weeks may be busier than others. Students seeking 2 credit hours should expect four to six hours a week, and those seeking 1 credit hour should expect between two and three hours a week.

If credit is sought, student must work with faculty to complete the Honors Contract form (pdf). Student will then submit form to the Honors Program.

Faculty: 

Faculty members submit to the Honors Program descriptions of research projects along with desired student qualifications. Students apply to work on a project of interest, and faculty select the student from the applicant pool. The Honors Program oversees a satisfactory experience for both, and provides academic credit to the student through HONR 2185. If student is working for credit, student must work with faculty to complete the Honors Contract form (pdf). Student will then submit form to the Honors Program.
