What is Research?

When you think of a student researcher, what comes to mind? An archaeology major excavating a stone tool made thousands of years ago? A theatre major performing in an adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet in the style of the Beijing Opera? A future bioengineer conducting research on biomechanics and bioinformatics?

All of the above are examples of research. They are explorations and investigations, each creative in their own way, which involve students exploring the academic and artistic challenges of their fields.

At Binghamton, we define undergraduate research as a mentor-supported inquiry, creative activity or scholarly investigation conducted by an undergraduate student that makes an original intellectual or creative contribution to the discipline. Original can be defined as a meaningful contribution by the student; it should be entirely or partially novel; it may reveal more questions than answers.
