Meredith offers more than 90 majors, minors and academic programs to challenge you as well as a robust support system through our Student Success Center. We also offer a range of experiential learning opportunities to enrich your academic experience, including honorsstudy-abroadundergraduate researchinternships, and community-based learning. We invite you to explore them, and then contact us if you have questions or you’d like to arrange a visit. We can set up a meeting with a professor in your academic area of interest, or arrange for you to sit in on a class.

Experiential Learning

We know that much of your learning will happen outside of the classroom – that’s why 97% of our students participate in some type of applied learning experience.

Strong Faculty

As passionate about teaching as they are about scholarship, Meredith faculty are at the heart of the academic experience. Learn more about what makes our faculty so strong.

Professor of Physics Bill Schmidt grew up with parents who were teachers, so it was only natural that he would become an educator. His passion for physics and astronomy begin at a very young age and inspired him to want to teach his students to understand challenging concepts and gain a larger perspective of the world
