2015 URP Information Coming Soon!
The Duquesne University Undergraduate Research Program (URP) is funded by the Bayer School of Natural and Environmental Sciences, the Mylan School of Pharmacy, the National Science Foundation and the departments and faculty of the University.
Mission and Objectives: The goal of the Undergraduate Research Program is to combine research, professional, and outreach experiences that will provide our students with the necessary tools to intelligently and actively participate in an increasingly technical world.
The Undergraduate Research Program provides students with essential research experience for a career in the sciences or science-related fields. Students are encouraged to start research as early as their freshman year, allowing them to gain as much experience as possible. The National Science Foundation has reported that students who participate in research enjoy the sciences and finish their degree in their field, while others tend to give up or feel that science is not for them. Duquesne University would like its students to start enjoying their science careers as early as possible.
Positions are available in biochemistry, biology, chemistry, environmental science, forensic science and law, pharmacy, or physics. The Bayer School faculty are committed to experiential education for their undergraduate students and seek junior colleagues to become members of their research teams. Students in the summer program participate in research, seminars, ethics forum, the Summer Research Symposium, and Community Service.
