Does BYU fall under the category of a research university?

Hello! I am a junior who is interested in attending Brigham Young University in the future. One of my priorities is engaging in research as an undergraduate student. Can anyone tell me if BYU is considered a research university and if research opportunities are indeed available there? Thank you!

Hello! I'm glad to hear that you're considering Brigham Young University for your higher education. To answer your question, yes, BYU is a research university. They value research and provide ample opportunities for undergraduates to get involved in various projects across different disciplines.

In fact, BYU has a dedicated Office of Research & Creative Activities (ORCA) that was created to support research and creative endeavors of undergraduate students. They offer programs, grants, and resources to help students gain experience in research or creative work.

Additionally, many professors also conduct research and are often eager to involve undergraduate students in their projects. One way to find these opportunities is by talking to professors in your major or area of interest, attending on-campus research fairs, or checking the department's website for available research projects.

My own child has participated in undergraduate research during their time at BYU, and they found it to be a great way to expand their knowledge beyond the classroom, as well as network with faculty and fellow students. So, rest assured that there are plenty of research opportunities available at BYU. Good luck in your college journey!
