New to Research

Are you new to research?

The key to getting started in research is finding a subject you are passionate about. Take advantage of the opportunities afforded you by getting to know your professors, teaching assistants, and classmates to find out what kind of research they are conducting.

Getting Started

If you are looking for an existing research opportunity, thinking about designing a research project on your own, or wondering if research is even for you, the Office of Undergraduate Research can help you get started.

We can help you find a faculty mentor or even help you attend one of the many OUR conferences or events. 

Meet the OUR Advisory Board

The OUR Advisory Board is a group of experts who lend their skills, guidance, and knowledge to the undergraduate research community at Lamar University.
