Undergraduate Research

The Symposium

The Undergraduate Research & Scholarship Symposium celebrates the many contributions made by Tufts undergraduates to scholarship and research advances. It includes presentations by undergraduates from all disciplines: natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, humanities and the arts.

The Symposium provides a great forum to meet other undergraduate researchers and exchange interdisciplinary ideas. Additionally, it will be an opportunity to present research before Tufts faculty members and student peers. Thesis writers take note--the Symposium is a great way to fine-tune your presentation skills.

Participants have the option of presenting 20-minute oral presentations or creating a 36" x 48" poster for an interdisciplinary poster session.

This year's Symposium will take place on Tuesday, April 28, 2015. Save the date! (Note: this is a change from the previous time listed for this year--be sure to adjust your calendar!)
