Research Opportunities

Since UW Madison is a research university, there are tons of research opportunities available to students (and roughly 15% of students take advantage of this). It doesn’t matter if you’re studying biochemistry or postcolonial literature; this opportunity is available to any student, any major!
To get started, explore your options using the links below and then talk to your advisor about your next steps.
Some tips for inquiring about research opportunities via email:
  • Keep emails short (1-2 paragraphs)
  • Include your year, potential majors or fields of study, and your GPA if it's strong
  • Give a background to relevant courses you've taken
  • Explain why you're interested in that person's research, and be specific!
