Undergraduates who want to conduct research will find plenty of opportunities at Rutgers. It’s what happens at a research university. You don’t just learn about theory in the classroom. You can work shoulder-to-shoulder with top faculty as they postulate and make discoveries—and you can put your own original ideas to the test.
Research gives you deep knowledge of a particular subject matter, and it gives you so much more. It requires you to analyze, think critically, write coherently, problem solve, and manage and interpret data—skills that are useful no matter what profession may be in your future. Research also sharpens life skills—patience, organization, teamwork, and persistence—that will serve you well in almost any situation.
