Do you yearn to bury yourself in books, read for hours, and write for even longer?  Then perhaps you should consider undertaking history research as an undergraduate!
You donít have to save an independent, in-depth investigation of the topic you love until graduate school; indeed, itís better if you begin now.  Undergraduate research permits you to test the rigors of an academic life.  And if you discover you adore research, not only will your decision to pursue a PhD be a well-founded one, but youíll have something special to note on your graduate school applications. ?
