10.8. A_LAB: Undergraduate Research

Oglethorpe students have a variety of opportunities to participate in hands-on research, both with faculty and through independent study (see Sec. 6.15.). Students enrolled in the honors program (see Sec. 9.16.) will complete and defend an honors thesis under the direction of a faculty supervisor and reading committee.  Students are encouraged to submit their theses to appropriate competitions or for publication, including the Oglethorpe Journal of Undergraduate Research (see Sec. 10.8.2.).  Students are also required to present their thesis research/project at the annual Liberal Arts and Sciences Symposium (see below).
