Additional Program Info
Students majoring in the chemistry and biochemistry programs are required to participate in research projects under the supervision of various faculty members in the department. During the spring semester of their junior or senior year, students will present their research findings at the Student Poster session held at Misericordia University. Students will also present their research to faculty and students from Kings College and Wilkes University through a consortium.
The research program at Misericordia University offers students one-on-one mentoring opportunities with faculty and experience using instrumentation.
Students can apply to receive funding for research through multiple avenues including the student research grants program and the Summer Research Fellowship program.
Students can also complete and internship outside of the university to account for the required research credits in the curriculum. Below is a list of internships that students have completed during their summers at Misericordia and through national internship programs.
