Undergraduate researchers in the College of Arts, Media and Design are better prepared for graduate school or professional employment because they have the skills and confidence to take risks, innovate, and create.

CAMD students may conduct their own individual research projects, work with a faculty member, or be part of a group project.

How to find research opportunities

  1. Review research opportunities with an advisor.
  2. Check with individual professors in your areas of interest via email or in person to find out who might need assistance.
  3. Check departmental Web sites. Many have information on research being pursued by faculty.

Funding for student research

Financial compensation may come from work-study funding for part- or full-time positions, grant funding, or undergraduate research awards sponsored by the Office of the Provost.

For more information about undergraduate research opportunities on and off campus, access to Northeastern’s faculty mentor/project database, and information about the more than 100 Provost’s awards made each year for undergraduate research, visit the university’s undergraduate research website.
