New College Undergraduate Inquiry and Research Experiences

NCUIRE: Research Opportunities at the New College at ASU

undergraduate research

Undergraduate research is an integral component of the New College experience. The New College Undergraduate Inquiry & Research Experiences (NCUIRE) Program provides opportunities to New College undergraduates to engage in meaningful research partnerships with faculty and other undergraduates.

Faculty-student research collaboration benefits students, faculty and the university. For students, research is a great way to gain experience that may make you more competitive when you apply for jobs. You’ll delve deeper into many of the most intriguing topics you cover in your coursework. Plus, research encourages you to apply what you learn in the classroom to solve real-world problems as you work alongside a world-renowned expert in your field of interest. You may also gain a mentor who can help guide you as you progress through your academic career and beyond. Finally, if you are majoring in a New College program you can be eligible for a small stipend or college class credits.
