Frequently Asked Questions

Is there research for credit opportunities in CAFLS?

Yes! All of the departments in CAFLS offer undergraduate research opportunities through directed research or creative inquiry courses. Speak to your adviser to learn more about these options and where they might fit into your degree plan.

Is there funding for research in CAFLS?

CAFLS students have the opportunity to apply for funding for undergraduate research through the Undergraduate Research Initiative.  Students will then participate in our research symposium with a presentation of their research.  This is excellent practice in public speaking and great preparation for graduate school or any career where problem-solving and communication skills are important.

Are there opportunities to publish or present undergraduate research?

The CAFLS Undergraduate Research Initiative is a great opportunity to present your undergraduate research. Your faculty research mentor can also provide information about opportunities for field-specific publications and presentations.

Additionally, the Office of Creative Inquiry and Undergraduate Research hosts the Clemson Student Research Forum each April. The forum is open to all students. The Student Opportunity Center is a free database platform available to all Clemson students to provide access to more than 10,000 presentation, publishing, internships, and funding opportunities.
