    • Field research
    • Guest lectures

    • Mock interviews
    • Mock trials

    We also offer challenging research opportunities overseen by faculty members—like partnering with a New England school district to study and evaluate its schools’ anti-bullying programs. You may even have the chance to present your findings at Worcester State’s annual Celebration of Scholarship and Creativity.
