Does BYU fall under the category of research universities?

Hi everyone, I've been considering applying to Brigham Young University (BYU). I'm really interested in engaging in research during my undergrad years, so I was wondering if BYU is considered a research university. Appreciate any information you can provide!

Hello! I'm happy to provide you with some information regarding research opportunities at Brigham Young University (BYU).

BYU is considered a research university to an extent, as it does offer research opportunities for undergraduate students. The university emphasizes mentored research, where faculty members actively collaborate with and support their students in various research projects. Some fields at BYU may have more research opportunities than others, though.

If you're passionate about research, I encourage you to explore the resources available on BYU's Office of Research and Creative Activities (ORCA) website, which offers information on programs, grants, and research conferences. The best approach would be to dig deeper into the specific research areas that align with your interests and check the departments offering those research projects. This will give you a clearer idea of whether BYU would be a good fit for your research aspirations.

Best of luck with your college search and application process!
