Opportunities for Research

Opportunities for Research
Honors classes provide a unique intellectual and co-curricular experience.

Honors at LSC is an undergraduate-research program. Courses and co-curricular activities, including our Honors College Leadership Program, are based on national best practices as set by the Council for Undergraduate Research.

Students are encouraged to develop research projects and coursework based on their own interests and career goals - and they develop analytical, communication and leadership skills that help them succeed no matter which future academic or professional career they choose.

Since undergraduate research skills and related soft-skills offer students an edge for transfer and career regardless of degree or profession, eligible students from all programs of study are welcome to apply.
