Mentored Undergraduate Summer Experience

TCNJ undergraduate students spend eight weeks in residence at TCNJ during the summer, conducting research or engaging in creative activity in mentored collaboration with TCNJ faculty. The program funds research stipends and on-campus housing for the students, and consists of a vibrant mix of ideas and projects across all academic disciplines. MUSE includes a coordinated program of intellectual and social activities to build an exciting community of scholars.
