For many majors, research is something that can benefit students a great deal. There are many various types of undergraduate research available at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Doing research could mean conducting experiments, gathering data, preparing labs, and much more. The type of things you do for research depends across the spectrum of majors and who the research is conducted with. Getting into a research lab can be different from an application process. A couple of ways of doing it is by looking up which professors do what research and then asking them, helping out in labs, or asking an advisor for more information. Some of the benefits of research include acquiring valuable skills (like leadership, organization, etc.), developing good relationships with staff/faculty, and being a part of something that is meaningful to you. As previously stated, what happens in research labs differs for everyone, but some possible labs could test hormones in animals, human behavior in certain situations, study animals, and more. Not only this, but some people can apply for grants once they are in labs and have a mentor which allows people to do their own experiments. Overall, all of this can greatly enhance one’s college experience and you’ll come out of it with valuable skills!
