Beyond the Classroom: Research Opportunities at Misher

While many of our science classes have built-in lab components, we at Misher believe there is no better way to learn about science than participating in original scientific research. That’s why every Misher student in good academic standing has the opportunity to perform investigative research with state-of-art equipment and facilities and expert faculty. Misher students have presented research findings in physics, biology, psychology and the social sciences, chemistry, and even literature at national and regional conferences. Your education at Misher goes well beyond the confines of the classroom.
