The annual Undergraduate Research Symposium event showcases outstanding research papers of undergraduate students at the School of Theatre, Film & Television.

Over the course of several days starting Monday April 4 at noon, the research paper presentations of student finalists will be made available to view at urs.tftv.arizona.edu.

Follow us on InstagramFacebook or Twitter, where we will post when each panel goes live. The symposium will conclude on April 8 with an announcement of generous prizes for student winners. Mark your calendars and join us as we celebrate the work of our students!
