Research that Matters
Internships in real research labs are part of every Govie's experience.
Since 1990, Govies have been making significant contributions to research projects at the state's research universities, and in labs in Asia, and Europe. We're so serious about research, we made it a graduation requirement.
GSSM students work side by side with graduate students and scientists and make real contributions to science. Sometimes, these contributions are significant enough that students are listed as co-authors on published studies or are asked to present their work at national conferences.
Research & Inquiry is one of the distinctive programs that makes GSSM unique. In previous years, GSSM students have lived in Germany, China, and South Korea for eight weeks doing research and making connections around the world.
Students can also conduct research during the school year through a Research & Inquiry course. Find one in our course catalog (pdf).
