Research Opportunities

Students in global studies are encouraged to partner with faculty to pursue independent research on global issues at home and abroad.  Funding for undergraduate research is available through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) and the International Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (International UROP).  

Each spring, students in global studies have the opportunity to present their research at the Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Conference.  This conference, co-sponsored by the Institute for Global Studies and the departments of Spanish and Portuguese Studies, Asian Languages and Literatures, French and Italian, and German, Scandinavian, and Dutch, features student panels in a variety of target languages and on a range of interdisciplinary topics in the liberal arts.
