URICA Symposium

Undergraduate Research, Internships and Creative Activity 

Our annual URICA Symposium showcases the creative – and hard – work of Bethel students. The 2022 symposium is virtual and asynchronous format, meaning individual presentation videos on a variety of topics can be accessed by anyone at any time.

The benefits of a virtual format are numerous. Undergraduate research at Bethel College can reach a much wider audience. Student research can be viewed by many more people who normally could not attend in person including students’ family members, potential employers and graduate school representatives. All URICA presenters and poster presenters pre-recorded their presentations and the videos can be accessed and viewed multiple times.

For a comprehensive list of undergraduate research conducted at Bethel, visit our undergraduate research database.
