Project Description: 

The Advanced Research Experience Seminar (ARES) in Speech and Hearing Science

Students with strong academic performance are invited to apply for this advanced research seminar. Students enrolled in the seminar will have the opportunity to conduct research in one of our SHS faculty research labs. Labs in the SHS department are conducting research in a range of areas, including projects involving neuroimaging, cognitive assessment, reading and dyslexia, aphasia, cochlear implants, signal processing, articulatory disorders, cleft palate, stuttering, genetics, traumatic brain injuries, aging, and bilingualism.  The students will work with faculty and PhD students to gain hands-on experience with the research process by completing an independent research project. The number of students accepted each year is determined by the number of openings in desired labs and qualifications that are requested by faculty. We expect that there will be more applications than openings for the 2017-2018 year. Students who are accepted into the seminar will enroll in the Advanced
Research Seminar in SHS (SHS 498) for the Fall and Spring semesters.  At the end of the Spring semester, each student will present a research poster at the annual Department of Speech and Hearing Science Research Poster Symposium, an exciting and well attended departmental event. Because of the exclusivity of the seminar, participating students may want to list the research poster presentation on their academic resume.

Eligibility Requirements (Note: Applying does NOT guarantee an invitation to participate in the seminar.)
a) Must be a SHS major or SHS minor OR a Barrett Honors student from any department
b) Must be a Junior or Senior in the Fall of 2017 (Honors students may apply for their Sophomore year, but may not have highest priority)
c) Must have at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA
