BRING US YOUR “WHY,” WE’LL SHOW YOU THE “HOW.”

We’re a leading research university; you’re an undergraduate with a passion for research.

If you think “science” when you think of research, don’t.

VCU is an innovative place. Here, undergraduate research happens everywhere, in all schools, departments and disciplines. Whatever your course of study, research projects will set you apart academically — especially if you decide to advance into graduate school or a doctoral program — and will also set you up for success out in the work world.

The skills you’ll develop extend far beyond any research project: Information gathering and analysis, logic and reasoning, developing and proving a hypothesis, communicating and presenting results — these are competencies you’ll use every day in class, study, graduate school and beyond. Real-life skills.

Ready to create something meaningful with your inquisitiveness? Bring it to VCU and get the resources and support you need to make your research a reality.
