What students do
Undergraduate research assistants in Penn State’s College of Health and Human Development participate in hands-on, real-world research with world-class faculty. Students collect survey information, work in research labs, conduct data analysis, and more. Some students develop their own research projects and present their findings at regional or national conferences.
Undergraduate research is a fantastic opportunity to learn new things, apply course work, build your resume, and possibly help to build a better world.
