Research on Global Challenges
The Research on Global Challenges course (UNIV 302), offered by the University of Calgary, offers hands-on supervised research experience while exploring interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary solutions to complex global
issues. Students should contact the College of Discovery, Creativity, and Innovation regarding consent to register and to identify a supervisor.
Students will build foundational skill sets in scientific research, teamwork, problem-solving and collaboration with an interdisciplinary student cohort, addressing issues such as poverty, hunger, health, education, gender, climate change and economic development.
Global challenges project streams this semester:
· Carbon dioxide removal
· Humans, animals, and the environment
· Indigenous experience with the police
Program for Undergraduate Research Experience
The PURE program enriches and expands undergraduate learning by allowing students to collaborate with a faculty supervisor to learn how to create research projects and how their findings will lead to new insights while solving social problems.
PURE is a unique learning opportunity to explore personal research interests while developing the abilities to collaborate, think critically and creatively, and communicate with the research community.
PURE provides up to $6000 of financial support to students conducting research for 8, 12 or 16 weeks between May and August.
