Independent research is at the core of the Williams-Mystic experience. There’s nothing quite like venturing into the field to help you understand how science is made — nothing like delving into the archives to understand how history is written. And with upwards of 13 different majors in a typical class of 18-20 students, independent research projects give students the opportunity to draw on their pre-existing interests and expertise.

Williams-Mystic students conduct research projects in all four disciplines over the course of the 17-week semester.
