Considering Research?

Why Participate?

Engaging in experiential learning through research can transform your skills, attitudes, and career plans! It affords you the opportunity to develop new skills and knowledge while learning about how to engage in research work mentored by top researchers at Mississippi State University. You can meet others with similar interests, gain confidence, immerse yourself in the intellectual environment at MSU, and potentially use your experiences to help you choose a future career path.
