Research & Creative Arts
Celebrating student research and creative scholarship.
Cal Lutheran students across all disciplines are given opportunities to participate in research and creative scholarship, allowing them to make original contributions to their fields while completing their degrees.
Faculty-mentored, self-directed work is facilitated through our research programs. Students' accomplishments include all types of scholarship—traditional lab research, creative works, quantitative research and qualitative explorations.
Giving them invaluable experience for the future, students can present their research to their peers and the community during our annual conferences and exhibits. They also develop the motivation, integrity and attitude soft skills necessary for personal and professional success.
Undergraduate Research & Creative Scholarship
We foster student research experiences and internships through our Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Scholarship (OURCS).
Research & Education Centers
Our faculty-led research centers provide opportunities for both graduate and undergraduate students to help further the knowledge in their field.
