Research and Scholarship

For research and scholarship that changes the world.

Research and scholarship is an integral part of the student experience at Creighton. Become a part of it with the Center for Undergraduate Research and Scholarship (CURAS), the premier location to discover undergraduate research and scholarship opportunities, connecting faculty and students together.

Become involved.

At Creighton, you don’t have to wait until you’re a graduate student to participate in research. As early as your freshman year, you can work side-by-side with world-renowned faculty members.

By getting involved in research as an undergraduate, you set yourself apart when applying for graduate school, national research scholarships, internships—and future careers. You could be one of dozens of students who have presented their work at national and international conferences. Or you might co-author a published peer-review journal article.

I came to Creighton because of its thriving research environment, meaningful Jesuit values and genuine campus community. Most of all, the faculty, staff and students all sincerely cared about me and that was a powerful motivator.
