Research is one of the fundamental building blocks of the majority of the graduate
work conducted at Montana State University. Most of the graduate degrees awarded require
students to conduct original research which is then presented in theses, dissertations,
or published articles. You can learn about the types of research under way at MSU
by visiting the Research and Education Centers and Programs page or by perusing the colleges and departments.
Electronic Dissertations (ETDs): Complete copies of all MSU dissertations produced since 1996 are available in electronic format. This service is only available from computers with an appropriate MSU IP address.

Graduate Research Assistants
Research conducted by Graduate Research Assistants (GRAs) is at the heart of a significant portion of the total sponsored research at MSU. GRAs conduct research in a relevant area of their major course of study, under the direction of a faculty member.
