MSMS students have the opportunity to participate in research during the academic school year and through summer programs. MSMS partners with Mississippi State University research faculty to offer unique experiences. Students may have mentors with the veterinarian school; CAV (Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems), Bagley School of Engineering; and other departmental research such as biomedicine, chemistry, physics and mathematics.
In the summer counselors and faculty help students find research opportunities at varying Mississippi universities such as The University of Mississippi, Southern Mississippi University, Delta State University, and Mississippi State University. Students are also encouraged to showcase their research at the NCSSS (National Consortium for Specialize STEM Schools) Research Summer Symposium.
