Research lies at the very heart of William & Mary, where scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates collaborate to expand knowledge of the world around us and to devise innovative solutions to local, national, and global challenges.
Student research starts on the first day of class at William & Mary. It doesn't matter if that class is organic chemistry or Greek tragedy. Students learn best through guided, hands-on inquiry and experimentation. And it's W&M's mission to incorporate projects of real scientific, scholarly and creative merit into every undergraduate and graduate course offered. By senior year, more than 80% of undergraduates have participated in mentored research with faculty.
