Intensive research opportunities are available for students over the summer months. These experiences to collaborate with faculty on research in any field — be it the natural sciences or humanities — can be student- or faculty-driven and are funded through a variety of sources.
Research is for everyone.
At Muhlenberg, research is a fundamental example of hands-on learning and a distinct part of the undergraduate experience.
It provides a space where problems can be dissected, questions pulled apart — it’s a space where new ideas emerge, are tested and refined.
Our students conduct research in disciplines across campus, including the arts and humanities, as well as the natural and social sciences. Some are examining the disruption of memory in slime mold while others are exploring the liminal relationship between book and body.
Your research experience will leave you with so much more than the answers you set out to explore. The opportunity to work with faculty to design, execute and present your findings will unlock a new level of understanding in the world and your own potential.
Research efforts don’t stop when classes return. It’s during the school year that many students visit conferences to present findings from research projects, including those that spanned the summer months. Find out how to continue or jumpstart research projects during the fall and spring semesters.
Take on challenges and forge connections with hands-on learning.
Rigorous and challenging academics are part of Muhlenberg's foundation.
