Eastern students conduct research in every major. Unlike at larger institutions, where faculty-mentored research is chiefly conducted by graduate students, Eastern students can start conducting professional research as early as their first year. Research projects can be team-based and part of a class or conducted as independent study. Students also have a host of presentation and publication opportunities to share their research and learn valuable professional/academic skills in the process. Faculty mentors in each academic department support student researchers, with overall coordination provided by the Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity.
