Student-faculty research is one of the best and most important things we do at Monmouth. In fact, research is a main component for many of our academic programs. MU students and faculty have a strong rapport and work closely together on many significant projects that help us better understand ourselves and our environment. Students play integral parts in these studies, whether they are conducted on campus, in the field, or at the beach only a mile away.
Our students have many opportunities to present their research at regional, national, and even international conferences. They have also co-authored publications in leading professional journals. Several notable projects have been developed during the School of Science’s annual Summer Research Program, where students work on collaborative research projects under the supervision of science faculty and staff.
This research experience is invaluable for the road ahead. Students are able to develop meaningful projects that not only enhance their professional development, but also stand out on résumés and applications. Indeed, with their name on such important work, students make a big impression on future employers and graduate schools.
