Undergraduate Research

We offer several opportunities to have your research and creative work published. Many of our students graduate as authors. From literary journals to newspapers and blogs, we encourage you to take the opportunity to share your work with fellow academics, artists, and the public.

English Research Opportunities

You can register for our independent study or undergraduate research courses, which provide opportunities to complete a research project with the guidance of a faculty mentor. Ask your academic advisor for more information.

Our faculty enjoy sharing their research with students. If you're curious about a professor's area of research, ask about pursuing a collaborative project. Or, invite a professor to mentor you while pursuing your own ideas.  

Presenting Your Research

The English Department provides opportunities for our students to experience the excitement of presenting their work in public forums. Our students showcase their work locally, regionally, and even nationally.


Apply for funds to support your research or related travel. The College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences grant applications is now available!
