Imagine being able to contribute to the creation of new knowledge with peers and faculty mentors. Research is an integral part of academic life at USC Dornsife, and students are encouraged to engage in research at every stage of their academic careers.
Opportunities range as wide as our selection of majors. You might investigate the processes through which children acquire language, study peace and conflict through interviews with survivors of genocide and civil war, work on new methods to detect cancerous tumors, or analyze online economies and apply game theory to the digital universe. Students can even propose their own original research projects. This is what makes USC a premier research institution: Dornsife faculty are actively engaged in groundbreaking research, and undergraduate students are working every day alongside our most renowned scholars.
