Research Opportunities for Undergraduates
Interested undergraduate students may participate in a number of communication research and scholarly projects, including the undergraduate journal, Comm-Entary, regional and national undergraduate conferences, and faculty-directed independent studies. Some of these projects may be eligible for funding from the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP). The UROP office (Hood House, Room 209, 862-4323, M-F, 9-3) schedules proposal-writing workshops each semester for undergraduates. Contact the UROP office or your Faculty Advisor for more details.
Comm-entary is the annual student journal of communication that was founded in 1981.Articles are "blind-reviewed" by a student editorial board, that is, the editors do not know the names of the authors of submitted work until after an article has been accepted for publication.
Undergraduate Research Conference (URC)
The Undergraduate Research Conference (URC), is a weeklong symposium, where undergraduate students from all academic disciplines present the results of their scholarly research in professional and artistic venues.
Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research
As a major research university, UNH provides all students with the unique and valuable opportunity to conduct research during their undergraduate years.
UNH's Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research provides the resources and financial support for the research, scholarly and creative projects of UNH students. Whether it's investigating moose habitat, examining the effects of the European monetary union, or composing music for a dance concert, each year students from all fields of study receive grants to embark on their own explorations.
Learn about the programs. Meet some of the students. Read about what other students have done. Then find out how to start a project of your own.
Through the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP), students may apply for Undergraduate Research Awards (URAs) and Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURFs). The Hamel Center also administers the International Research Opportunities Program (IROP), Research Experience and Apprenticeship Program (REAP), INCO 590 & INCO 790, Study Abroad Research Grants, Honors Thesis Grants, and Research Presentation Grants.
