The University of Washington is a research based institution and there are countless opportunities to do research. Students who are interested in research opportunities will want to seek out faculty members who are conducting research in areas that are similar to their own interests. A good place to start is to look at various faculty members’ websites to see what they are currently researching in order to determine if it would be a good fit.
The Washington Directed Reading Program (WDRP) is an initiative from the Mathematics Department. The program pairs interested undergraduate students with mathematics graduate student mentors to embark on a quarter-long independent reading project. Students must apply to the program.
WXML teams consist of a faculty mentor, graduate student, and 2-5 undergraduate students. The underlying goal of all WXML projects is to contribute to mathematical research while also making it accessible to the general public. Students must apply to the program.
The Undergraduate Research Program (URP) works toward ensuring that all UW undergraduates who wish to enrich their education with research obtain such experience. The URP facilitates research experiences for undergraduates with UW faculty members across the disciplines
