Look into Laurier

Join us at Laurier

Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

The Faculty of Liberal Arts (FLA) has been spearheading a number of exciting projects to create and promote a culture of undergraduate research at Laurier.

In order to cultivate excellence in undergraduate research, the FLA's undergraduate research initiatives provide a range of support for students to develop their research skills to showcase their research on and off campus.

Our Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program provides exceptional students with the opportunity to pair with faculty mentors to develop and conduct innovative research projects. Students selected for the program receive a research award generously funded by the Race family.

Our annual Undergraduate Research Celebration Week, featuring student conferences, workshops, special lectures and presentations, has been a great success and we look forward to continuing to foster and celebrate undergraduate research at Laurier.

The FLA's journal, Bridges: An Undergraduate Journal of Contemporary Connections publishes top quality essays and reviews by Laurier undergraduate students and has developed an extensive international readership.

If you have any questions about the FLA's undergraduate research initiatives, please do not hesitate to be in touch with Christina Han, the Coordinator of Undergraduate Research for the Faculty of Liberal Arts.

"I am a third year student doing a double major in Criminology and Human Rights and Human Diversity with an option in international development. During the Winter semester of my third year, I joined the Research Apprenticeship as the managing editor for Bridges: An Undergraduate Journal of Contemporary Connections. Being the managing editor was such an amazing experience, as I was able to see the process of how an academic journal article is published, which prepares me to continue on to post-graduate studies."
