Research

Here you will find a world of discovery.  Professors teach what others have learned, but at Montclair State University they also teach what they have learned themselves in laboratories, studios, and in the field. At MSU research is a growing enterprise. Professors who are learned scholars participate and contribute to their respective fields therefore adding to our base of knowledge about many of the key issues that confront us today. Health, the environment, the economy—we are exploring them. Technology and innovation—you will find them at the heart of the University’s research community.
