    Summer Programs

    Undergraduate Research Opportunities

    While Williams-Mystic does not run in the summer, we usually have a number of undergraduates working on original research with our faculty. Our summer research students come from colleges and universities from around the world and can be found working in our labs or academic buildings on innovative projects and first hand research.

    Students, dependent on space, might work with within Literature, Geology, or Biology, or a combination. Research opportunities change every year and interested students are encouraged to write to the admissions department with any and all questions: admissions(at)williamsmystic.org.
