The Scholar Treatment.

Faculty-directed undergraduate research complements classroom learning through learning by doing and reflection on doing, and as such provides an additional educational opportunity that transforms our students into scholars. Undergraduate research experience is invaluable and provides our scholars with a multitude of opportunities while they are enrolled at West Georgia and upon completion of their undergraduate degree.

OUR Opportunities

We are dedicated to facilitating undergraduate student involvement in scholarly research in all academic fields. Please let us know how our office can support you!
