your future

Undergraduate researchers are pursuing solutions and discoveries that matter. We invite students to present their research and meet future mentors at the Eberly College's inaugural Innovation in Appalachia Research Symposium, May 18-19, 2020.


The Eberly College of Arts and Sciences is committed to making a difference in the state of West Virginia. Our responsibility to create a knowledge-based economy is tied to the innovative research and groundbreaking discoveries made by our internationally recognized scholars. 

Our faculty are well established experts in their fields, leading cutting-edge research, creating highly collaborative outreach opportunities and building a strong foundation of scholarship.

Whether we are investigating climate change, studying the opioid crisis or carrying out research on linguistics, our research is changing lives.

Interdisciplinary Research Collaborative seed grants

Mini-grants of up to $10,000 are available to support Eberly College faculty research activities advancing the mission of the College's Interdisciplinary Research Collaborative for a Safe and Healthy Society: to advance the land grant mission of WVU and the Eberly College by addressing challenging conditions faced by society in the state and region.


The humanities are how people understand the human experience and the world around them. The humanities bridge time, personifying a connection to those who have come before us. Research in this area documents the past, transforms the present and creates the future.

Social Sciences

Social science is the study of human behavior and its relationship to society. Our interdisciplinary research considers individual and group behavior and the resulting cultural, economic, political and social implications, driving social change to benefit present and future generations.

Natural Sciences

Natural science is the study of the physical world around us. It encompasses the transformation of any measurable phenomena, from energy to matter. Our research in the natural sciences nurtures discovery, taking on today’s challenges to improve West Virginia’s quality of life and make the world a better place.
