Educational enrichment and engagement opportunities for students frequently serve as a pivot point in students’ transformative experience. The College’s centers and education outreach programs provide these real-world opportunities for students to apply learning in a professional setting. These experiences may include internships, field study, practica, research, service learning, student teaching, study abroad, and academic-based and inspired community engagement, among others.
The quality of student-faculty engagement is a key differentiator at MSUM, and no where is it more evident than in the number students within the College working with faculty on research projects. A high percentage of students within the College present the culmination of their work at the university’s annual Student Academic Conference, and many also attend or present their research at regional and national conferences.
The College of Science, Health & the Environment has 16 research laboratories, including a biological field station, that provides scientists, faculty and students the opportunity to be involved in nationally significant research. Among our research labs: marine biology, fish research, neurobiology, prairie ecology, child development, memory, and geographic information systems, among others.
