Ways to engage in research as an undergrad at OSU

Undergraduates can engage in research with a faculty mentor without being a part of a formal program or through a variety of organized programs. Programs vary in their timelines and eligibility requirements so make sure to read about each one here and visit us at drop-in advising hours if you have any questions!

Thesis-Based OSU Degree Programs

Undergraduates at OSU can also engage in research and submit a thesis as part of their undergraduate degree. Four OSU programs currently offer this option.
