The Honors Research Program is designed to challenge academically gifted students with a strong interest in undergraduate research. If you participate in this program, you will take a seminar course in your junior year and plan an independent research project to be completed during your junior and senior years under the direction of a faculty member.

You also may do undergraduate research through an independent study or employment.

Read more about faculty and student research. Field experience helps you put theory into practice and lets you explore different career opportunities. You may earn credit for field experience in Ithaca or another location. 

Interested students should read the section entitled The DNS Undergraduate Research Honors Program in the current DNS Roadmap, and contact the Program Director, Dr. Julia Felice (, Kinzelberg Hall B36B) with any questions.
