Research opportunities at IU enable undergrads to think big—and go far

At IU Bloomington, undergraduates are studying subjects like the association between food and memory. They’re documenting seldom-studied African languages, investigating renewable energy, identifying neuronal abnormalities related to Huntington’s disease, and examining political rhetoric.

Students conduct research with faculty mentors—in programs like Integrated Freshman Learning Experience (IFLE) or Science, Technology, and Research Scholars (STARS), or by working in a lab.

The best way to investigate undergraduate research opportunities is to contact the program or department you’re interested in. New research opportunities come up every semester.

No matter what postgrad plans you have in mind, you’ll have access to the research facilities, and the faculty, to help you get there.
