The faculty members in our department are active in research and have a variety of academic interests. Several faculty members are currently mentoring students interested in undergraduate research related to their own fields of study. The Undergraduate Research Program offers Undergraduate Research Fellowships where faculty can get a grant for a student to assist with current research.
With the department including Sociology, Criminology and Anthropology, the research that students are involved in is quite diverse! Check out what students are studying and how many of them got involved by utilizing the grants and fellowships provided by the Undergraduate Research Program here at UW-Whitewater. (See website for a list of all grant and fellowship opportunities and deadlines: www.uww.edu/urp). Students have presented their research at local, regional, and national conferences.
Several students graduating from our department have gone on to get their Master's and Ph.D. degrees in graduate schools. Undergraduate research is a great jumping off point for graduate education. Here is a small sample of the schools and programs some of our students were accepted.
