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.

Advising

From choosing courses to preparing for interviews, NYU’s support services will help you succeed. As you earn your degree and prepare for employment or graduate school, you can rely on:

  • An academic adviser who will guide and help you achieve your educational and career goals.

  • Choosing a course of study and deciding on future career goals are two of the most important decisions that students make during their undergraduate years. The Wasserman Center for Career Development  partners​ with students on their career development journey through engagement with career coaches, employers, peers, and staff throughout your time at NYU and beyond.

  • The College of Arts and Science's Preprofessional Advising Center. If you are considering law, medical, or dental school (or other professional training), advisers can help you apply for advanced degree programs.

  • Professional clubs and associations. Develop leadership skills and contacts in groups for everything from healthcare to law to entrepreneurship.
