National Undergraduate Research Week, which takes place this year from April 8-12, recognizes undergraduate research projects and the importance of providing research opportunities for students. In conjunction with Undergraduate Research Week, APSA showcases undergraduate research projects submitted by political science faculty and departments.
Featured research is the result of undergraduate coursework, capstone research, and departmental or institution-wide undergraduate research efforts. Departments wrote in to share information about the excellent work of students who have written honors theses, published in student journals, and presented at conferences. APSA is pleased to recognize the students who conducted this research and the mentors who supervised their efforts! Read more here.
Pi Sigma Alpha, the national political science honor society, also provides opportunities for undergraduates to get involved in political science research. Founded in 1920 at the University of Texas for the purpose of bringing together students and faculty interested in the study of government and politics, the society functions at the national level, sponsoring programs and events of value to the profession and teaching of political science, and at the chapter level.
