Summer Research Academy

students

Sessions will run daily from 5 pm - 9 pm. 

Research is a powerful tool that can help you prove a theory, build knowledge, increase awareness, seize opportunities, and succeed in business. 

The AUC Summer Research Academy is an interactive workshop that offers you the training by AUC faculty in the step-by-step development of a research proposal. You will learn the basics of narrowing a topic of interest, writing a research question, developing a tentative annotated bibliography and literature review, describing the research method, and developing and presenting a complete research proposal. Unleash your curiosity and passion for discovery this summer, and join us in an exceptional educational experience.
