Welcome to the Journal

The Journal of Undergraduate Research is the premier undergraduate research publication in the College of Arts and Letters at the University of Notre Dame. Our goal is to select and disseminate the finest original academic research of students enrolled in Notre Dame’s oldest college.

The Journal is a student-run enterprise from start to finish. Our editorial board, wholly comprised of undergraduates, affirms the value of undergraduate research and strives to provide an authoritative medium through which the University’s most erudite scholarship can be promulgated within the College, the Notre Dame community, and academia at large.

We conduct a rigorous review process to represent the best research across all academic disciplines in our College. By utilizing both print and online vehicles to circulate the Journal, we hope to make our high-quality essays available to the greatest number of readers.
