College of Science


 

The College of Science encompasses the physical, life, computational, and mathematics sciences, offering 41 disciplinary degree programs and seven interdisciplinary science programs. The leadership of our renowned scholars and researchers drives an ever-expanding culture of discovery and innovation which embraces all perspectives as we endeavor to solve the grand challenges that face our world. Nearly 350 tenure-track faculty conduct world-changing research and deliver a transformative education to nearly 1500 graduate students and 5300 undergraduates. We are a community of learners that develops practical solutions to today’s toughest challenges.

By extension, College of Science students are innovation leaders whose disciplinary technical expertise and exemplary problem-solving skills are in high demand. Industry, professional schools, and graduate programs equally value our students for their professional skills and ability to drive discovery in a highly diverse global environment collaboratively. Each undergraduate program blends courses and experiences that create a unique path for each student as they pursue disciplinary interests and personal and professional goals through minors, certificates, and experiential learning opportunities, including research and Study Abroad programs. For example, the Learning Beyond the Classroom certificate, open only to CoS students, blends career and professional; service, citizenship, and leadership; and domestic and international diversity experiences to bring real-world know-how to the classroom experience.
