What Inspires You?
Got more questions than answers? Have a passion for research or want to find out? At Brandeis, original exploration is not just for faculty or graduate students. The Undergraduate Research and Creative Collaborations Office can help you find topics, mentors, and funding for an original research or creative project in close collaboration with leading faculty.
Our undergraduates are researching subjects as diverse as quasars, Christianity, and the American media, to name a few of the many student-inspired projects our office is facilitating across the arts and sciences.
With support from the Davis Educational Foundation*, we are building on our distinctive culture of mentorship, enabling all undergraduates to pursue research opportunities in the creative arts, humanities and social sciences, and sciences.
*The grant was received from the Davis Educational Foundation established by Stanton and Elisabeth Davis after Mr. Davis' retirement as chairman of Shaw's Supermarkets, Inc.
We’re help to help you find what inspires you and pursue it.
