• Clarify academic and career interests;
• Acquire knowledge in an academic field that transcends the classroom;
• Understand how research differs across disciplines;
• Strengthen critical thinking skills, problem solving, and work independently;
• Find a faculty mentor;
• Enhance a resumé for graduate school, professional school or employment;
•Apply theories to real-life situations; and
• Learn and/or experience the methodologies, tools and techniques.
