Opportunities for Research & Presentation

Opportunities for Research & Presentation

CRC Symposium

Students can present their research and creative projects during Methodist University's annual CRC Symposium. Presentation styles are discipline specific (e.g., performances, readings, or the more traditional oral presentation). Students not wishing to present their material in an oral format can create and display their work in a poster format. (For designing a poster refer to the poster guide.)

Undergraduate Research & Creativity Fellowship

Students who want to immerse themselves in a culture of research and creativity can become Methodist University URC Fellows. The pathway to becoming a Methodist University URC Fellow is intended to be intense and rigorous. However, upon completion of the program, the successful students will be well-rounded and open-minded and will have had an experience that sets them apart from their peers at MU and other institutions.


Coming Soon! Within the next two years students will be able to apply for the Summer Undergraduate Research and Creativity Experience. This Experience will be more intense and in-depth as the project will be the student's main focus and will not be balanced with more formal course work of a typical semester. At the end of the Experience, the student will be required to present his or her material in a manner suitable for the discipline.


The State of North Carolina's Undergraduate Research and Creativity Symposium (SNCURCS) is held at a North Carolina University every fall. Methodist University has traditionally had a strong presence at this conference, and it is expected that this trend will continue.

The CURC encourages the students who have conducted collaborative projects to apply and attend this conference, as well as other discipline-specific professional conferences.
