Georgian Court University offers student-faculty research opportunities across a range of academic disciplines, giving you opportunities to:
- engage in academic inquiry outside the classroom;

Whether you are working on your own project under the guidance of a faculty member or are individually mentored by a professor while assisting with his or her research, participating in research at GCU will enhance your personal and professional development. Student-faculty research projects are valuable collaborations and one of the many ways in which GCU enhances the student experience.
Academic Excellence Celebration
Each year, Georgian Court University celebrates the scholarship and creative works of GCU students and their faculty mentors. This annual event focuses on scholarly pursuits and research findings across disciplines like biochemistry, biology, dance, exercise science, history, social work, and more. In 2019, for example, student researchers examined everything from invasive plant species along New Jersey’s beaches to the merits of natural antimicrobials like lemongrass and tea tree oils.
