The School of Science and Mathematics offers students the opportunity to learn and apply the scientific approach to the acquisition of knowledge and to develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills. These opportunities are provided through an extensive variety of courses and research experiences in the sciences and mathematics and involve both theoretical modeling and experimental investigation.
The courses and programs offered within the School prepare all students, regardless of major, to understand the role of science and mathematics in today’s complex society, to realize their integration with all disciplines, and to become life-long learners and positive contributors to their communities.
The School provides curricula at both the undergraduate and graduate levels with the necessary depth and breadth of knowledge for students majoring in a scientific or mathematical discipline to be successful in gaining employment or entrance into graduate or professional school.
