Student have many opportunities to engage in undergraduate scholarship and research, including giving talks and poster presentations at conferences and publishing papers.
All Longwood students are required to complete an internship or research experience in their program of study. Students meet this requirement under the guidance of a faculty member, as an intern in industry, or in the case of students who are getting certified to teach, via their student teaching. Some of our students also opt for a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program to fulfill their internship requirement. Additionally, some students opt to complete a Senior Honor Thesis with a faculty mentor.
There are many opportunities for students to engage in scholarly activity and research both within the department and outside Longwood.
