CU-Boulder has approximately 1,200 full-time faculty members; 91 percent of them hold a PhD or an equivalent degree. Professors hold weekly office hours and can advise you about how you’re doing in class, what courses you should take, career options, and student research opportunities. Outside of the classroom, professors are conducting research in their individual fields and making a place for themselves and the university in the history books. Our faculty members have distinguished themselves in many fields, earning four Nobel Prizes and numerous other national and international awards.
If you work on an independent study project, you may choose a topic from a specific area of study or ask a professor to help you design a project tailored to your interests. Projects could include writing a play, doing laboratory research, or designing a space shuttle experiment. Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) sponsors undergraduate students who wish to work in partnership with a faculty member on a research or creative project. enrichment.colorado.edu/UROP
