Undergraduate Research

Undergraduates interested in research opportunities and off-campus internships should check out the Undergraduate Research & Experiential Learning Program

Areas of research loosely align with our four PhD programs:

The college's eight departments provide the college with a unique blend of disciplines: from psychology to neuroscience or brain activity, chemistry to biochemistry, sensor development to sensory perception, and computational modeling of ecosystems to water percolation in soils.

The college has instituted a new hiring strategy to develop areas of strength across typical departmental borders. The current research clusters that the college is developing include:

  • Cell Signaling
  • Environmental Sciences - Science of Global Change
  • Computational Science and Modeling
  • Science Education

To find scholary articles, student projects and more from the colleges & schools use Wright State University's Campus Online Repository (CORE) Scholar.
