Hands-On Research Experience
Gaining hands-on research experience develops critical thinking skills, demonstrates significant capacity, and strengthens your application. Check with your advisor to see if research is recommended for your field of interest. UNO strongly supports undergraduate research through a variety of programs.
To arrange for research opportunities, first read about faculty research interests on department web pages. Individually contact faculty members to see if they are currently seeking undergraduate researchers.
Ideally, research should start within your sophomore year.
