Students doing research

Research, stat!

Oxford provides numerous, practically unheard-of opportunities for you to conduct professional research in your first and second years of college in academic areas that interest you.

Some of the opportunities you’ll find include:

Research Scholars Program

Students chosen as Oxford Research Scholars will work directly with faculty members for a full academic year on research projects. Faculty members in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, mathematics, and physical education previously have worked with dozens of students on a variety of projects.

As an Oxford Research Scholar, you’ll present your work during the annual Oxford Research Scholars Spring Symposium. As a participant, you’ll learn how research within your discipline leads to knowledge creation, get introduced to current research within your discipline, and learn how research is organized and funded.

If you engage in research as a second-year student, you’ll be able to compete with juniors and seniors when applying for summer internships. You could also be chosen to participate in Emory's Undergraduate Research Programs, formerly known as SIRE, after completing your Oxford degree requirements.

The Oxford Research Scholars program reflects our commitment to involving first-year and second-year students in the research process. Participation in this program is by invitation only. Students interested in participating in this program can contact a professor whose research interests them.

Summer Undergraduate Research at Emory/Oxford

The SURE–Oxford program is an extension of Emory’s Summer Undergraduate Research at Emory (SURE) program funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. In SURE–Oxford, you’ll work with Oxford faculty for 10 weeks in the summer as a researcher on projects with a biological or biomedical emphasis.
