With an appreciation for the impact that undergraduate research has on student success, Providence College supports scholarly research and creative and artistic work carried out by undergraduates and supported by faculty mentors.
What are the Benefits of Undergraduate Research?
Students who participate in undergraduate research:
develop a one-on-one mentoring relationship with a faculty member;
engage in the creation of new knowledge and apply that knowledge to the real‐world;
acquire a deeper understanding of their respective academic discipline;
enhance critical skills in communication, independent thinking, creativity and problem‐solving; and
enhance academic credentials to support applications for scholarships, awards, career employment and entry into graduate and professional schools.
