Research experience will help you develop your critical thinking and problem solving abilities and encourages academic independence. It can make you more competitive for the next step in your career or graduate study.

How to Get Started with Research

The first step in getting involved in research is to contact possible research mentors. Read through the ENSP Core Faculty Directory and Affiliated Faculty Directory to identify professors who are doing work that interests you. Contact a couple of them for appointments to discuss your ideas.
