Student describing his research to a professor and another studentPresenting your work to students, faculty, and the community is an important and integral part of undergraduate research.  UA students have multiple presentation opportunities on campus.  Journals, such as JOSHUA and Dewpoint; the annual UA Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Symposium; McNair Scholars Research Conference; the New College Review; Dance Alabama!; and numerous theatre and musical productions are some of the venues available.

The College of Arts and Sciences fosters undergraduate learning in many ways. One of the most exciting techniques for teaching students is providing opportunities for each student to become the researcher or artist themselves.

Our college has a significant number of students who have been named Barry Goldwater Scholars, one of the most elite academic scholarship awards in the nation. For more information about the Goldwater Scholarship Program, visit

Our annual Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Conference held each spring is another demonstration of our undergraduate opportunities.
