Undergraduate research opportunities

Undergraduate students in social sciences have the unique opportunity to participate in more than one research program.

Make your start as a researcher beginning in the fourth year, indeed, even in the second year! With their unique format and learning objectives, these programs allow you to develop complementary skills and enrich your academic experience.

See if this makes you interested in graduate studies, and develop skills prized by employers! Participate in one or many undergraduate research programs!
