You can also register for Undergraduate Research Courses. All of these courses have a strong research component associated with them.

These courses have been identified as "undergraduate research" courses. These courses incorporate research and scholarly work as a major teaching method and prepare students to conduct scholarly activity in their area of study.

Students that are interested in research should meet with their advisor prior to enrolling in one or more of the following courses as many have prerequisites or minimum GPA requirements. Also, please note that there may be other courses not listed of which we are unaware, so consult with your advisor or the course catalog to find out more about these courses.

In addition, you should talk with faculty you have courses with and fellow students. Plus, every departmental website has faculty listings that describe the faculty's work and provides their contact information. These are all good sources for finding research experiences.
A few of the more helpful resources that list faculty and their research interest are found at the following sites:
Summer research programs give students the opportunity to have an immersive research experience during the summer period that might not be possible during the school year. Summer programs are a great way for students to try something new or take their experience to the next level. These programs generally pay a stipend and cover travel and housing expenses during your participation in the program. Below are some resources to explore both UAB and external programs. If you have any questions please email or make an appointment with the Office of Undergraduate Research.
