Each spring, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences hosts an Undergraduate Research Symposium, open to all undergraduates with a major in the College who want to showcase their research and creative activity.  Students working on research projects (course research or independent research) under the supervision of a Mason faculty member are eligible to participate.

The eighth annual College of Humanities and Social Sciences Undergraduate Research Symposium will be held on Thursday, April 20th, 2017 from 12pm to 5PM.
