Women in STEM
Answered

Hi!

I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for colleges that focus on women in STEM and if anyone has experience in these places. I'm a dedicated student and in the top 5 of my school which has around 1,100 students. I am more than willing to put in the work for applications and coursework, but am struggling to find a good STEM program. Thank you!

Is there a specific area of STEM you want to study?

[🎤 AUTHOR]@sojisch18 days ago

I am mainly interested in biology, specifically marine biology.

This website says the best program for marine biology is the University of Oregon, when Google says it's the University of Miami. However, I would just try to get into the best school you can overall, usually better schools have better graduation rates and higher salaries after graduation. If your in the top 1% of your class, just about any high ranking schools you can get into will have good programs for this.

I have recently been to UCSB on a college tour. The campus is so pretty and they have a new and great marine biology program and I meet 3 women with that major on campus, and they say great things about it.
