Modern Foreign Languages Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research is a priority at Dominican. The Office of Undergraduate Research, Scholarship and Creative Investigations (URSCI) promotes student-faculty collaborative research and scholarship. 

Funds are available on a competitive basis to: 

  • Provide a summer stipend to students performing their own independent research
  • Cover research-related travel or supplies or
  • Pay a stipend to students who assist faculty with the faculty member’s research.

Undergraduates in all disciplines are eligible for all three types of awards. 

URSCI’s Expo is one of the year’s highlights. This daylong event is held each April to showcase independent student research in all disciplines. 

At the 2010 Expo, for example, the following Italian students participated in a panel “ Reading Dante (and his Comedy) Carefully:” 

  • James Ortega ‘11
  • Maria Deri ‘11
