Is BYU a research university?

Hello, I'm currently considering applying to Brigham Young University, and I wanted to know if BYU is considered a research university. Does anyone know what kind of research opportunities are available for students there? I'm planning to study health sciences. Thanks!

Hello! Yes, BYU is indeed considered a research university. It offers various research opportunities for undergraduate students, even in the health sciences field. My own child had the chance to work on research projects during their time at the university.

Faculty members are often engaged in different research projects, and you might find opportunities by reaching out directly to professors or through the research centers at BYU. Two noteworthy centers for health sciences research are the Office of Research and Creative Activities (ORCA) and the Fulton Supercomputing Lab, which oversees a lot of biomedical research.

Additionally, participating in extracurriculars or clubs related to your field of study might open up more research opportunities and collaborations. Make sure to explore and network once you join the university, and you will have a great chance of getting involved in research projects!

Best of luck with your application to BYU, and I hope you find the right research opportunities that align with your interests!
