Experiences in Undergraduate Research

EUReka! Courses (Experiences in Undergraduate Research) offer undergraduates the opportunity to experience the excitement of discovery early in their academic careers and to begin building a relationship with a faculty mentor. EUReka classes are offered in disciplines and departments from across the university. In a EUReka course, students might find themselves exploring how mathematical modeling can be used to solve community health problems; interviewing contemporary composers about their creative processes; recovering the history of Kansas City in local archives; analyzing genes and their protein products; or investigating the digital literacy practices of campus groups. Students can search for EUReka classes in Pathway as an "Attribute" of any section of a course.
