Students Showcase their Research in First Humanities Poster Session
The College of Humanities at the University of Utah hosted its first Humanities Student Research Poster Session on April 25, 2023, showcasing the work of 26 students from various disciplines. Students from Salt Lake Community College also presented at the event.
The poster session provided an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to share their research and engage with peers, faculty and staff. This year's event included 18 posters representing a range of topics. The Office of Undergraduate Research was a proud sponsor of the event. Attendees had the opportunity to speak with the student presenters and learn about their research methods, findings and future directions. The poster session allowed students to gain experience presenting their work in a professional setting, which will be valuable as they pursue careers or academic study.
The Humanities Student Research Poster Session is just one of many opportunities for U students in the humanities to engage with the world around them as they deepen their understanding and extend education beyond the classroom.
