Undergraduate Research

Research drives every pursuit within the College of Human Ecology. Innovation in research, design, and practice is one of the key learning outcomes for our students. Each year approximately 500 students work with faculty members on research projects. These include basic laboratory research; clinical, social, and behavioral research with human participants; field-based studies; evaluation of programs, designs, and materials; and analysis of socioeconomic trends using large data sets.  These experiences build on and extend the research-based knowledge and critical thinking skills students gain in classes and provide valuable skills and perspectives that students bring to their careers and passions after Cornell, even if they do not pursue research careers.

See Exploring Undergraduate Research Opportunities for strategies about how to identify research opportunities.

See Undergraduate Research: Frequently Asked Questions for answers to common questions.

For additional information, including information about honors programs, contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies for your major.
