Explore, Experience, and Succeed at F&M

Research Possibilities

The cornerstone of the educational experience we offer is students working side-by-side with faculty who want to help them test ideas — not just talk or read about them. These are not experiences you have to wait until graduate school to pursue. It's a core part of what we do.

A Global Education

Our focus on global education recognizes that, no matter where life takes you after F&M, you will work and live with people with vastly different ways of perceiving our world. A global education helps you begin to understand how to negotiate these differences, strengthening your abilities to successfully live and work in our increasingly global society.

Success Beyond F&M

We’re a partner in your success on Day 1. Explore how we engage with students across all four class years — and discover how that commitment helps you land jobs in leading industries and gain admission to high-demand graduate and professional programs around the world.

Our Home: The City of Lancaster
