The ARCH program covers your 4th year requirement with the Honors College and count for up to 6 credits.

Need help constructing a topic?
Schedule a meeting with Associate Dean Juan Carlos Espinosa or Director of Undergraduate Research Allen Varela. You can conduct research under any academic discipline including creative works in the Arts.

Plan to work on a FIU faculty member’s project?
Sign up for ARCH. You can join a faculty member’s lab, group, or team and work on their project for ARCH. If you already signed up for one, then you can still register for ARCH.

Registered for a departmental thesis, capstone, or design project?
Register for ARCH. A departmental thesis, capstone and/or design project also counts as an ARCH project. Please note that not every FIU college offers this option, so please speak with your degree program’s academic advisor.

Conducting research abroad?
Enroll in ARCH. Your ARCH project does not have to take place in FIU. Previous ARCH projects were completed domestically and globally.
