The Undergraduate Research Program at Meredith offers direction and support for students who are ready to be original, to push at the boundaries of the classroom and the textbook, and to connect with others who share their interests. Students collaborate directly with faculty as undergrads to build partnerships that support ongoing research and creative endeavors – an opportunity nearly 50 percent of Meredith students embrace.
Students in all academic programs may earn course credit for approved research work. Academic advisers and faculty who share a student’s interest can offer further information and guidance.
Students have many opportunities to participate in and present original research during their time at Meredith. Some of the programs supporting student research include:
Celebrating Student Achievement (CSA) Day, a tradition at Meredith, offers a full slate of research presentations, performances, and award ceremonies that showcase the work of students. The 13th annual event was held on Tuesday, April 14, 2015.
Megan Amanatides, ’15, has grown as a leader, an athlete, and a scholar while at Meredith. Individual support from faculty and athletic staff, undergraduate research opportunities both at Meredith and in a large university setting, and an amazing internship led to a full-ride scholarship at a top graduate program in atmospheric sciences and geographic information systems.
Lindsay Parlberg, ’15, is the first woman in Meredith’s history to graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Public Health. Her diverse internships and research experiences have helped her decide what area of public health she wants to pursue and have prepared her for a professional position in the public health field.
