Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities

Students who engage in research and creative activities as undergraduates have higher learning gains, such as problem solving and critical thinking skills, and increased self-confidence and independence. Good problem solving and critical thinking skills are highly valued in today's workplace - no matter the field of study you decide to pursue!

Is undergraduate research for you? There's only one way to find out! Look through our site, find a faculty member in your department, and contact him or her about engaging in research and creative activities. Or, contact us and let us help you find a research mentor!

Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.

-Zora Neale Hurston

Research Spotlight

Josh BotticherThis past summer, Joshua Botticher participated in CURCA’s inaugural Student Start-Up FUSE Program. During the six-week program, he performed geochemical, petrographic, and spatial analyses to determine the connections between Georgia’s three most prominent granite outcrops: Stone Mountain, Panola Mountain, and Arabia Mountain. Joshua worked under the mentorship of Drs. Jerry Allison and Katayuon Mobasher to complete his research and hopes to present his findings at the 2016 Geological Society of America conference in September as well as at UNG’s 22nd Annual Research Conference in March 2017.
