We are committed to working with you on undergraduate research projects, whether these be connected with your current coursework or independent studies you wish to pursue during the academic year or the summer. With the assistance of Dr. Ernest Zitser, our SES Librarian and Bibliographer, we can help you develop your bibliography and locate the research materials you need.
