Undergraduate Research Opportunities

There are a variety of mechanisms by which UF undergraduate students can get involved in research: (1) Independent study (SPA 4904) in which students receive course credit for the time they spend in the lab (typically 8-10 hours/week); (2) Paid assistantship from a grant; (3) Honors thesis research. If you are interested in becoming a research assistant or conducting an honors thesis, then you should contact Dr. Masapollo at
