Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate research at Mercer provides students with hands-on experience that complements the breadth of their education.

At Mercer, students are given the opportunity to take the lead in top-level research endeavors, which transforms them into scholars who answer tough and relevant questions. Our students work closely with faculty members, not graduate students, in state-of-the-art facilities to complete projects that contribute new knowledge to their fields of study.
