At CSUF, we create learning environments that foster understanding, inspire interest and engage students in work that is meaningful, serves a purpose and has long-term impacts. Participating in research or creative arts at CSUF strengthens analytical and leadership skills, cultivates creativity and innovation, and ultimately results in students who are prepared to make a difference.
When you engage in research, you experience many benefits – some immediately visible and some that take effect over time. Participating actively in research or the arts aids in identifying areas of interest, trying things out under the guidance of caring mentors, learning about the history of your interests, developing self-confidence, learning laboratory techniques, working through obstacles (an aspect of every research or creative process), understanding how professionals work on real problems, gaining entry into distinct worlds of the humanities, sciences, social sciences, the arts, and much more.
Below are various resources for pursuing research opportunities on campus and outside Cal State Fullerton. For additional information on student research opportunities, contact Drs. Nathalie Carrick or Terri Patchen.
The Resource Library aims to support research by providing tools to help streamline the proposal process, as well 24-hour access to information to meet the busy schedules of our faculty, staff and students. Whether looking for language to help with your proposal narrative, instructions/guidance on developing your budget, need to download a form or require help with terminology, you will find it on the pages to the left.
