Research at WSU
Students are essential to research and creative inquiry at WSU.
WSU students can explore a variety of research and creative topics alongside talented faculty mentors.
From arts, education, and humanities to the health, natural, physical, and social sciences—there are no bounds to what you can investigate.
We welcome students and faculty from all WSU Colleges and departments to dive into what they’re passionate about.
Whether you do a project through a capstone for class or for additional hands-on experience in your field, there are plenty of ways to conduct research at WSU.
Students have researched the Ebola virus and virus-like particle vaccines, new ways to develop solar energy cells, and even the history of galaxies and how the universe has evolved.
Or you could find yourself studying how different drugs interact with one another in the body, the impact humans have on fish ecology in local streams and waterways, and so much more.
