Loyola offers a variety of research courses every semester. These courses are usually, but not always, aimed at upper-level students. Some are capstone courses in which you conduct a research project based on material presented in the course itself. Others are more basic, giving you academic credit for research you are doing that semester in a lab or through a LUROP Fellowship.
Importantly, many undergraduate research courses will earn you engaged learning credit. Check out this list of Undergraduate Research Courses for Fall 2021 in several departments.
