School of Natural & Mathematical Sciences
The School of Natural and Mathematical Sciences encourages students to explore, research, and discover. In addition to a rich classroom experience, our undergraduates have ample opportunities to work with faculty and peers on original research projects in state-of-the-art facilities. We are committed to educating and supporting the next generation of women leaders in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Historically, women have been underrepresented in STEM fields. At Meredith, we help women succeed and thrive with faculty mentors, powerful internships, opportunities to build a professional network, and more.
