The Undergraduate Research certificate is designed for students interested in attending graduate school or pursuing research careers. Students complete a systematic undergraduate research preparation program consisting of 16 hours of coursework, many of which will count toward their general education requirements or requirements for their major.
An overall USF GPA of at least 2.50 must be maintained.
A grade of “B” (not B-) must be obtained in all courses applying toward the certificate.
Students who are pursuing a major or minor in the College of Behavioral and Community Sciences will have the opportunity to apply for Undergraduate Research Assistantships to work with a faculty member conducting research in an area of interest to the student. Students may also participate in the CBCS Undergraduate Research Interest Group. Contact: Lisa Landis (email@example.com) for additional information.
