One of the advantages of attending Ohio State Marion is that you can work closely with professors on various research projects. All full-time tenure track faculty on the Marion campus are engaged in some sort of research, creative expression or scholarship. Faculty in a variety of disciplines are often looking for research assistants and they are also open to students conducting their own research or investigations under supervision. Participation in undergraduate research benefits students educationally, professionally, and personally.
Undergraduate research requires an educational collaboration between students and faculty members. Research experiences may be initiated by students who seek out faculty supervision for their projects or by faculty members who involve undergraduate students in their research teams.Research can culminate in a written or oral presentation as a means of making the body of academic knowledge or creative exploration accessible to other investigators in the field, as well as to the general public.
