Undergraduate research is breaking new paths in knowledge and insight at Northern. Student researchers are active in the schools of Fine Arts, Business, and Education, as well as the College of Arts and Sciences.
Some students are working on Honors projects to fulfill the requirements of an honoribus degree; others conduct independent study or research activities to enrich learning.
