Undergraduate Research

Think research is just for grad students? Not at NYU. At the annual Undergraduate Research Conference, students presented more than 200 subjects ranging from glucose regulation in diabetes to dispersal patterns of spider monkeys in Belize to questions of free will in The Iliad.

As an undergraduate, you’ll have opportunities to work with professors on groundbreaking research. You can also conduct your own inquires with the guidance of a faculty mentor. NYU even publishes student findings in an annual research journal.
