Undergraduate Research

Welcome to the Undergraduate Research Program at Texas State

Developed by the Honors College and the Office of the Provost's AVP for Research and Federal Relations, the Undergraduate Research Program offers all undergraduate students funding opportunities to enhance their education through faculty-supervised research opportunities as we hope to continue the University's prestige as a research institution.

See About Us for more information on the Undergraduate Research Program's establishment and mission statement.

What is Undergraduate Research?

Students in all disciplines can do research on topics that interest them. In the past, honors students have done projects on a diverse range of topics including the 1960s philosopher, Alan Watts, Icelandic literature, digital archaeology, and the theater of the absurd.
