Before you approach a professor about research, read their CV and publications to be familiar with research interests. Knowing what information exists already about different research topics will be very helpful when conducting your own research.


These guidelines have been adapted from materials from,, the UCI Unergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), UCI Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) and Northerwestern University Research Guidelines.
