Research Practica

Opportunities sometimes arise for a student to work on a faculty member’s research team. Sometimes faculty will invite students to participate in a practicum, but students may also approach a professor whose research particularly interests them.

Students are registered for research practica through the Student Resource Office at the Music and Communication Building, room 5-134 or via permission number from the professor. Professor approval is required to register.

Some majors limit the number of research practicum credits that may apply to the major. See the relevant major requirements for more information.
