Independent Undergraduate Research in the Humanities (IURH) - Binghamton University

Sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities (IASH), the IURH program offers qualified Harpur College students the opportunity to pursue an independent research project in or about a topic relevant to the humanities.

Students in the program work both in a seminar and with a BU faculty mentor as they develop their ideas, pursue their research, write a paper, and prepare and present in a poster session. There are separate programs for sophomores and juniors with different requirements.
