Massachusetts Undergraduate Research Conference

Honors College students frequently join students from across the state to present their Honors Thesis or research findings at the annual MassURC. 

The Massachusetts Undergraduate Research Conference (MassURC) is an annual one-day event for undergraduate students from the 28 public colleges and universities across the Commonwealth to present research, share knowledge, and learn from fellow students.  

MassURC is free and open to the public, and is co-sponsored by Commonwealth Honors College, the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education, the Massachusetts State University Council of Presidents, and the Massachusetts Community Colleges.

Be a Presenter

Students are encouraged to present on any topic of interest in their academic studies as an oral, poster, or ePosterBoard presentation. For some, this may be traditional, scientific research. For others, this could include learning and discoveries in areas such as comparative literature, religion, mathematics, public health, education, and more.

In addition, the presentation topic could be derived from:

  • Thesis research
  • Creative work in the visual and performing arts
  • Course assignment
  • Independent study
  • Community service
  • Study abroad experience

Research in-progress may be presented so that feedback may guide or improve a project.

Deadline to submit an abstract: February 14, 2020
