Research Opportunities for Students at King's

Research and scholarship play an important role at The King's University. At King's, students have a number of different ways to get involved in interesting and exciting research opportunities – either on their own, as part of a project with a professor, or working alongside a community partner. Take a look at past student research, here.

Directed Study Opportunities

Work with a professor on one of their research projects! Students in their third and fourth years can apply for a directed study course to work alongside one of their professors. Typically, research-based directed study courses count towards your degree and take the place of an elective course throughout the year. Research-based directed study courses are available in all programs but space is limited.

Community Engaged Research

Do you want to make a difference in your community? Students in the social sciences at King's have the chance to work alongside professors and industry/non-profit partners on tangible research that makes a direct impact through King's Community Engaged Research (CER) centre. Students in CER have had opportunities to get involved in everything from rehabilitative medicine, to Downs Syndrome support; crime and recidivism, to young-father research.

King's Centre for Visualization in Science

The King's Centre for Visualization in Science (KCVS) is a leading research centre of The King's University. KCVS is committed to improving public understanding of science through the development of innovative ways to visualize it. Sound like something that might interest you? The team regularly hires computing and natural science students to help with their award-winning work. There are KCVS volunteer opportunities as well.

Summer Research Projects

Looking for an exciting way to build your resume? Classes typically end in April but campus comes alive with research projects during the summer! Take a lead role in research that makes an impact, either working on research with a supervisor or on your own pre-approved project. Summer research students have done everything from researching vulnerable honeybee populations, to travelling to rural Kenya to better understand the natural and social benefits of conservation agriculture.
