Research – ASL Linguistics Lab

In general, Purdue is a research-based university; there are multiple research topics that are available to students to participate in. I was able to choose from a list of various ongoing studies and choose the one that interested me the most. As a Speech Language Hearing Science student, each student is required to participate in a research lab or take a course to learn more about research methods. For the past two semesters I have had the opportunity to participate in Professor Ronnie Wilbur’s American Sign Language and Linguistics Lab. Because I would like to work with the deaf community in the future and will most likely do research while in graduate school, I am thankful to receive this experience. As a research assistant I am able to build a relationship with my research professor. I believe that this is extremely important because it is difficult to get to know professors otherwise. I believe that participating in research sets you apart from other students because it helps to give you a foundation for the future. Undergraduate students are able to see the entire research process and know they played a part in the completion of the outcome.
