ESU Research and Creative Opportunities for Undergraduate and Graduate Students
- Summer undergraduate research experiences (S.U.R.E.)
Undergraduate students can undertake cutting-edge and relevant research by participating in the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (S.U.R.E.).
- Funds for undergraduate research supplies and travel
The ESU Foundation offers the Josephine Louse Madara Undergraduate Student Research Endowment that supports the purchase of supplies, and travel for students who undertake research under the direct supervision of faculty.
- The Honors Program
The University Honors Program includes writing a final thesis. The thesis summarizes an independent research project initiated, designed, and completed by the honors student. At every phase, the student works alongside a faculty mentor of his or her choice. Typically written during the student’s junior or senior year, the Honors Thesis can serve, later in the student’s life, as the starting point for further, deeper research, such as a master’s or doctoral thesis.
- Sigma Xi
Sigma Xi is the scientific research honor society and the international honor society of science and engineering. The ESU chapter of the honor society was chartered in 1971.
- Graduate research opportunities
Graduate students have summer or academic-year long research opportunities to work with faculty on real-life research projects.
- Art Presentation & Exhibition Possibilities
The Madelon Powers Gallery, located at the Fine & Performing Arts Center, features an ongoing series of exhibitions by professional artists as well as by students in a 1,000 square foot exhibition space with two-story high ceilings.
- Theatre Performances
A degree in Theatre will prepare students for a variety of careers within the entertainment industry and beyond.
