Abstract: Bar and oval structures in galaxies are important for their secular evolution, also for better understanding the origin of the famous Hubble sequence. Particularly, bar can induce large amount of gas inflow and then will trigger massive starburst and black hole accretion in the galactic center. In this study, we try to understand how the bar structures will affect the star formation properties and AGN activities of their host galaxy by a multi-wavelength study of nearby barred galaxies using UV, optical and mid-infrared imaging data from ground and space-based telescopes (GALEX, SDSS, 2.16m at Xinglong, and Spitzer). Here we present our preliminary result and prospective of further analysis.
