Undergraduate Research & Creative Activities
Scholarship takes many forms. Research is often associated with the sciences and humanities. Creative activities are often associated with the arts. But scholarship is a unifying standard underlying all forms of academic inquiry.
Ultimately, undergraduate involvement in scholarly activities is "hands-on" in nature, often involving some student independence. Research and creative activities can be educationally enriching and highly rewarding experiences.
Participating in research or a creative activity can have many benefits:
- preparation for a career,
- preparation for graduate school,
- development of transferable skills.
- A project will generally lead to an outcome that can strengthen your resume (such as a linkable presentation).
- Projects can often lead to networking opportunities.
- Students generally work under the direct supervision of a professor.
You are greatly encouraged to explore the scholarship opportunities that ETSU makes available to its undergraduate students.
