Our Programs

The world of work in the 21st century is a both/and  environment: Students need to become experts within academic disciplines and develop crucial cultural and ethical awareness and cross-disciplinary skills and mindsets.  

Creativity, Innovation, & the Future of Work at F&M gives students in every department and academic major the chance to flex their hard-earned academic expertise while gaining invaluable real-world experience addressing complex problems as members of multi-disciplinary teams. Students gain this experience in our Problem-based courses, Incubator, Summer Research Program, and by participating in Co-curricular Workshops and Events.
