Research Symposium

The Symposium

The Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium celebrates the many contributions made by Tufts undergraduates to scholarship and research advances. It includes presentations by undergraduates from all disciplines: natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, humanities, and the arts.

This year's symposium will be held on Wednesday, April 29, 2020. You can find last year's symposium schedule, as well as a list of participants and their abstracts, here.

The symposium provides a great forum to meet other undergraduate researchers and exchange interdisciplinary ideas. Additionally, it is an opportunity to present research before Tufts faculty members and student peers. Thesis writers take note--the symposium is a great way to fine-tune your presentation skills.

Participants have the option of presenting 15-minute oral presentations or creating a 36" x 48" poster for an interdisciplinary poster session.

Check out the 2018 symposium program and email if you are interested in helping to organize the event in future years.
