Miami student researchers craft their own understanding of the value of inquiry-based learning. Every Miami program has opportunities for students to excel through research experiences. Students learn the research process involves systematic investigations to establish novel facts, solve new or existing problems, explore new creative ideas, or develop new theories. Miami students do not have to be a science major to participate in undergraduate research. Students get involved in undergraduate research in the math, engineering, business, humanities, education, fine and performing arts, and health, education and social sciences. A variety of student research stories are highlighted on departmental websites. Miami's ORU hosts the annual Undergraduate Research Forum each spring to showcase faculty-mentored student research. 

By participating in undergraduate research, students gain experience and skills valued by employers, graduate schools and medical schools. Miami is nationally recognized by U.S.News & World Report for its "unusually strong commitment to undergraduate teaching." Getting involved in research allows students to build meaningful relationships with our dedicated Miami faculty outside of the traditional classroom setting. Our model of engaged inquiry encourages critical thinking and peer-assisted learning to provide students with personal, educational, and professional growth.
