For Students

There are many ways USD undergraduates can get involved in research and creative activities.

The Office of Undergraduate Research offer a number of opportunities for students. The Pre-undergraduate Research Experience or PURE is offered to new USD students (freshman and transfer) who wish to engage in research prior to their first year at the university. The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience or SURE is a 10-week summer program for current students who wish to engage in independent research or scholarly project.

Other organizations on- and off-campus also offer research opportunities for students. Browse through this section for more information.
