Research and creative work is integral to the development of the student, both as a scholar and as an individual. At LMU, such work is encouraged the moment students are accepted to the university.  The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) offers support and opportunities for students in any major to engage in a research or creative project. There are a many options available to all students, freshmen to seniors, to lead or take part in a variety of projects, from scientific research to artistic endeavors, with other students or alongside distinguished faculty in that field.
