Research Opportunities

History offers a variety of ways to engage with research, from working with faculty to funding independent projects. History’s annual Undergraduate Research Assistantship Program matches student RAs with faculty who have research opportunities. As part of the Summer Institute in Social Science Research Methods, History offers an Archival Methods course, which can be taken as a course or paired with research with a faculty mentor.  History also provides funding on a competitive basis for Thesis and Capstone Track students to pursue archival research during the summer after their third year. In addition, the College Center for Research and Fellowships offers robust resources to support all kinds of undergraduate research.
