You can pursue substantive research with faculty members throughout the academic year, in short-term intensive experiences in January and August, or in summers of collaborative research in laboratories and field settings (with on-campus housing available).
These opportunities are not just reserved for seniors and juniors in the sciences. Many majors are structured to introduce students to research methods early in their studies, so they may get involved in research quickly – as soon as the sophomore year, or the second semester of the first year in many cases.
One of the best opportunities is SOFIA, Summer Opportunities for Intellectual Activities, an innovative three-week program that allows select new and returning students to conduct in-depth research and inquiry with Monmouth faculty.
