The Office of Undergraduate Research has developed original video content over the years to help explain how research is done across different fields and how to navigate tricky processes like applying for a grant. In fact, we have our own YouTube page OURatNU! We hope the videos will be informative and, dare we say, fun! Combine these videos with a meeting with an OUR advisor for maximum impact!
Did you ever wonder how research is done in different disciplines? Want to learn the steps you need to take to get started? Our Research In… series showcases top faculty explaining how undergrads can get involved in 15 different fields! Learn how it works, and see which one is right for you.
Do you think research is for other people, not you? Are you nervous about talking to faculty? Would you like to take the lead in your education, doing what interests you for a change? Then, our web series is for you! Follow Kirsten, Juliana, and Alvin as they struggle through the process of creating a project connected to what they want to do this summer — plus, you’ll get to meet the mysterious Grant Man, who seems to have all the answers (and a cowboy hat to boot).
Hear directly from students who have done this stuff themselves. See about their experiences and get their advice for how you can achieve your goals. They discuss everything from how to get started to how research works across different fields.
There are many parts of the research process, and these videos want to help you learn everything you can ahead of time. Why not take a few minutes to learn from the experts? There are videos on IRB/human subject research, international projects, and best advice from faculty too!
