      Undergraduate Research in History

      The Undergraduate Research Program at UW-Whitewater offers history majors a unique opportunity to develop and demonstrate their intellectual and research skills as well as their creativity. The program encourages students to formulate a research project of their own choosing outside of the classroom environment. Indeed, the program is a natural fit for many History majors and minors: by providing financial support and close faculty mentoring, the program permits our students to pursue their interests. You'll learn more than you ever imagined, and gain new skills as a historical researcher. In its final form, the project can be presented in a variety of formats including papers, posters, or creative performances.

      In recent years, our history students have had terrific success in presenting their work on a wide array of subjects and in different fields. Several of our students have won campus awards for their research and have presented at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research. We hope, and would encourage our students, to continue this trend of academic excellence.

      "The Undergraduate Research Program provides a unique research experience that most students do not get in a classroom environment. Being encouraged to develop your own topic of inquiry and to discover your own sources gives you a greater sense of ownership of your research than a typical classroom assignment provides."
